A little romance
One of the popular news stories in Puerto Rico recently concerned a woman who fell in love with a deambulante of the first type. Apparently she looked into his eyes when he knocked on the window of her car to ask for a handout, and saw beneath his outward appearance to the real person beneath. She helped him quit drugs and turn his life around, and when they married, a group of local people got together to donate everything from the cake to the honeymoon suite.
Here's the story in Spanish; here's a poor Babelfish translation.
