An old lady from a fairy tale, that’s a description from people who have been walking by her for many years now.
She has been quietly sitting in the same spot every day from 8 in the morning until 6 in the evening, she sits next to the National Museum in Prague, selling flowers for 30 crowns which is about 1,10EUR and whenever someone asks her if she wants food she shakes her head from side to side to show her disagreement.
The old lady is from Armenia, which is also the only thing you will probably get to know about her other than „I’m sorry I don’t understand” or “30 crowns for one flower”. Besides that she doesn’t say anything, just looks into the tunnel leading to the nearest train stop, which is where most people walk towards her. She looks at them with a very sad and kind of a puppy like look.
According to the people that have shops near the old lady´s spot, she has said a couple of things to them after a while. Apparently she lives in Horní Počernice with her son who buys the flowers in Černý Most for her every morning. But the sad part of the story is that apparently, she left for a while and they were worried that something has happened to her…
A few weeks later she was back, so they decided to go ask what happened on which she answered: “I was going to visit my family, perhaps I was hoping they would take me in and perhaps I thought that they cared.” The shop owner almost burst in tears and ran to her shop brought her food and some money.
