People of Berlin #1 - Straßenfeger

Slightly bandy legs, feet shuffle, laden with three heavy bags, two over his shoulder, one in his right hand. In his left hand a few issues of the Straßenfeger - and two fingers laced through the handle of a cup for coins. He covers the distance from one end of the train section to the other with a smile and a soft murmur of 'Dankeschöns' as people hand him their empty returnable bottles. He collects them in his bags. The heavy bags get heavier and he shuffles on.
