Buskers in Budapest

Street performers in Budapest often ply their trade in the underground walkways beneath roads and in the subway terminals. I took these couple of photos on walks through the city. I placed a few coins in their busking box, and then I was free to snap away with my camera.

I do not know how much money thee fellows make a day, but I figure it must be enough to live on, as I have noticed that many buskers work a full time day.

At one time I could remember that I wanted to be a traveling busker. So I learned how to juggle and tried my hand at swallowing swords. I am a bit regretful to say that I have not yet funded my travels through busking. Maybe somewhere down the winding, winding Road. Maybe not.
