I know we're all meant to observe good social distancing measures during these lockdown times, but isn't the little nemesis urchin taking it all a bit too far? Where is he hiding out? He could easily call out to us from the recommended 2 metres away and lay his little piece of paper on the ground. He doesn't actually need to have any physical human contact. He can catch the loose change we give him in his pocket - and wash the coins before handling.
I can't recall how many days I've waited to see him now. But it's the most ever.
