In every morning, the Buddhist monks walked around the streets for the morning alms. They were shoeless and carrying their own alms bowl. The young and the old monks were walking together. It was a part of the ascetic training.
The little monks in the photo also participated. Some of them seemed to be still sleepy during the alms. To become an esteemed monk seemed to be no panic. If I did the same thing, it might quit after three days.
