Jobs for the boys
I've overheard a number of people around town saying, 'whatever happened to all the shoeshine boys', as there appears to be less in Hanoi in recent times, but perhaps we're about to see more coming back to plying this trade as with the advent of the wear-a-helmet-or-else-law the lads currently out there have come up with a nifty business plan -- a diversification of their services, if you will. (About one minute in to that video.)

Can't say I'd bother myself, but the kid interviewed says he's doing a-ok out of it.
