The main drag along Waikiki Beach, Kalakaua Boulevard, is a common place to see performance artists hoping that their behavior will earn them some money. As Kalakaua is the most touristy street on Oahu, it's not surprising that mimes, balloon artists and other tricksters are drawn there. I once saw a guy dressed entuirely in newspaper -- I wonder how much money he made. I usually make note of their presence and occassionally give them a dollar if they're good. I gave this guy a dollar because I took his photo (that only seemed fair) and he jerked suddenly when I put the money in his bucket, startling everyone, including me.
