Huining - street scene - web

Huining. Large provincial town. Street vendors in the autumn sun. Household goods, clothes, fruits, spices. And cash. Or at least a large bundle of notes laying on top of some printing paraphernalia. Simple mistake or scam? The one where you pick up the money, hand it to the stall holder. He declares some is missing, threatens to call the Police unless you make it up.

[Author’s note: The 100 Yuan note shown is a relatively high denomination – worth approximately ten pounds sterling. So not exactly loose change]
