Letting the Kids Play

Posted on Apr 2, 2009 | 2 comments

In December I posted about these breakdancers on the via del Corso. This weekend I was doing some shopping and was back there to check them out again. They were great, as usual, and the cutest thing happened during their performance. This little boy, maybe 6 or 7 years old, came out shyly offering a few coins. One of the guys walked over and was really nice and friendly with him and the boy then started to show off his “moves.” He did a bunch of “breakdancing” moves and was clearly so happy to show off his stuff to the “big guys.” Then the nicest things happened, the breakdancer waved him over to their floor area and cleared the whole space for him to show off his moves to the whole crowd. I thought that was really sweet, as I’m sure that made the little boy’s entire afternoon. Bravi ragazzi!

On another note, I want to say happy birthday to my best friend Tiffany….she’s off celebrating back in the US and I wish I could be there with her!
