A RESOURCEFUL homeless man teaching English in Barcelona bars is on the verge of taking up a job offer a job in a London hotel.
The 55-year-old Hungarian, known only as Laso, ended up on the streets of Barcelona after a lifetime working in the hotel and restaurant industry.
Laso refused to take help from strangers and instead approached Good Samaritan Diego Bernal who helped him devise a plan to teach English classes in bars for €7 an hour.
Says Bernal: “He told me that he had spoken with the head of a London hotel and that he had been offered a job, starting now.
“He used the €148 he had earned in the last few days to go to Madrid, to the British Embassy. His passport had been stolen in a hostel – but as soon as he gets his documents, he will be off.”
