Everything But The Monkey

I have mentioned before that my city is full of gypsies. They have many talents and extreme ways of asking for your money. Here is just one. This beautiful music box on wheels that sounds like a cross between a harpsichord and a merry-go-round. There was no monkey but he was playing the soundtrack to Chocolat, an irony not lost on me as that film is about a traveling women chocolate maker who falls in love with a gypsy.
