I saw this kid in Stephansplatz, in the centre of Vienna, Austria. He was utterly amazed at the sight of a silver coated mime. It was like he was experiencing something from a different world, like seeing one of the fantastic characters of a fairy tale come alive. When the mime reached for his hand, you could see that he was part excited, part scared, part curious, but everything at the same time. He cautiously put his hand into the "strange creature's" hand and the moment when the two hands touched was priceless, as was the expression on the child's face.
