98 year old dobri dobrev, a man who lost his hearing in the second world war, walks 10 kilometers from his village in his homemade clothes and leather shoes to the city of sofia, where he spends the day begging for money.
though a well recognized fixture around several of the city’s chruches, known for his prostrations of thanks to all donors, it was only recently discovered that he has donated every penny he has collected — over 40,000 euros — towards the restoration of decaying bulgarian monasteries and churches and the utility bills of orphanages, living entirely off his monthly state pension of 80 euros and the kindness of others.
Pac was really funny. That’s what people don’t know about him. I used to always teasse him. I used to call him the Palmolive Thug ’cause if you ever touch his hand…the boy had the softest hands in the world. Like softest hands with really nice manicured nails and a little bit of weed stuck in them. We used to laugh and I used to tell him he had eyes Snuffleupagus. Like how you gon’ be a gangsta with Snuffleupagus eyes. What kind of gangsta is that? You a thug in Sesame Street? You know what I’m sayin? You know, real long eyelashes. But it was just me and him being silly. We was kids when we was around each other. I think it was good for him to have that. - Marlon Wayanas about Tupac.
