This man earns a living busking. He spends his days standing completely still, waiting for somebody to drop some money into his collection box. When someone makes a donation, he does a short dance before striking a new pose.

Wow I actually thought he was a statue, that surely canít be good for his posture.

Yes, it's disturbing that he has to live that way. On two occasions while I was watching him (not taking photos) men started messing with him. One even tried to undo his belt. On neither occasion did he move an inch.
