033 – 월미도 Street Beggar
The sound of one of Korea’s famous ‘cart beggars’ in the Wolmido area of Incheon, South Korea. These beggars roll around on their stomachs pushing a music cart along in front of them. I’m not sure if it’s true, but I’ve been told by people who work with the homeless that the Korean mob cut the Achilles’ tendons of these unlucky men to make it so they can’t walk. I really don’t know. They could be faking it, too. (033 – Wolmido Beggar)

*Again, sorry for the unclear picture. For the same reasons I mentioned in my last post, it was hard to get a good picture along this busy seaside walkway.
