Because you can adopt a fully postrate position in the middle of a busy street, rattle a few coins inside an empty can, break tourists’ hearts, collect some Euros, then get up, dust your knees off and walk into a bar to guzzle a tall glass of green absinthe of the highest cannabis content available on the market. Repeat when the astonished tourists have moved on.
