The Lady

She was in a underground playing her accordion for a few grivnas and we just passed by, and as we passed by we smiled at her. Her son was sick, maybe dead (she did not speak much english)so she tried to earn enough money for her whole family. She called us only to thank us for the smile, that made her feel good in a place where nearly no one looked at her, so she gave us the best she had in return: the most wonderful rendition of Love Story i've ever heard.
