I've seen her a couple times. I have also seen two "gringo looking" guys that do this as well. They are more than likely Argentinians. One thing they all have in common is that they are hippies. I have friends that came here from the States for a couple months and did things like this on the street not because they needed the money, but because they simply enjoyed entertaining people during traffic and didn't mind grabbing some soles while they were at it.

For some people, it's a way of life.
In Europe, you also see people begging and sleeping on the streets and in Europe there's no need for it. The government can provide free shelters and has free social restaurants for homeless people. I guess for some people it's a lifestyle.
