Things that impressed me on my visit to Europe were beggars and trees. Not that they're ot beggars here but they're really poor. In Europe I saw quite a lot of young people with decent clothes begging. This young man sitting at the window of Massimo Dutti store was one of them. Smart phone. good shoes and clothes just sat there with his dog. He had sticked a few drawings on the wall of scooby Doo and other cartoon characters. A small notice read: no work, no means. Help me.
Trees, tall big and very present in the cities I visited . Here they've been cutting off most trees from the main streets to make for larger roads. here is Nouakchott, Mauritania.
