    And on the way to back to the bar by myself from store and got lost, I have to ask directions to the place that everybody else were ( I had to go to store to buy feminine item), and some how me and this person started to talk like 20 mins on the street with my broken English, and in that conversations once he said '' so that you are kidda street person hun? hahaha... at that time I was not really offended but as time goes by thinking back I started to think that he thought that I was something else??? like uh,,, you know??

    A "street person" in the UK would be taken to mean a homeless person, ie a person who lives on the street.

    A "streetwalker" is a term for a prostitute!

    In the US as well "street person" refers to a homeless person who survives by begging for money from strangers.
