Another Sunday afternoon.
After the Japanese class at Orchard, I decided to go to Clarke Quay.
On the way, I saw a guy performing Didgeridoo, an Australian instrument, on the bridge near Jumbo restaurant.
He has his website too: http://www.shibaten.com
It sounds ridiculous that he tried to sell his CDs for 20$ each, given the fact that there is a donation box in front of him: “Japan. Thank you”. A lot of 2$ notes inside. I guess the surrounding crowd were curious about his story, not his music. I approached and talked with the girl (in the right side of the pix) in Japanese and English. It was a rare chance I practice Japanese outside my class :). She helped Shibaten to sell CDs, she only speaks a limited English.
Eventually I refused to buy the album but donated to him instead.
I was amazed about his passion to travel. He went to more than 30 countries. He had a lot of concerts in USA and Canada.
His story can be found here:
I really like this guy. Why don’t we travel a lot of places when we are young. Make new friends, open heart and soul to the world. Singapore is too small to stay.
