On a family trip to our kids' Tae Kwon Do test, this young man was playing and singing on the subway. I was surprised to see that many people were dropping bills into his bag. You rarely see people give beggars money (though maybe most people have heard as much as we have about the beggar scams). When he passed by us, I dropped in a few kuai and he shyly said, "Thank you" in English. We enjoyed him.
