  1. her name is Fatimah and she’s still there as of Feb 2013! i encountered her climbing up the stairs to the lion fountain. her vision is really bad now and she was walking with a cane up those treacherous stairs.

    1. Thankyou so much for that information Eden, but sad to hear of her situation. I could only do so much as to buy some of her tokens- and in doing so she graciously let me photograph her. Many thanks
