Street Musicians

There are three street musicians in Hong Kong. Not more, not less. Only three. At least from what I have seen during my time here.

It's strange isn't it? From 7.5 million people, only three chose to be street musicians? Do Hong Kong-ers not like street music? Or is it that simple that it is illegal (like so much else here) to sing on the streets? Maybe punishable by 5000 dollars or 6 months in prison. And since 5000 is a lot of money to a street musician, they are all in jail. So, maybe every sixth month the streets are full of street musicians?

I wonder what it is like to be in prison in Hong Kong.

Flattr this
