|In Front of the Dam Square in Amsterdam|
One of the perfect place to "Busk in a European country", and put to a test this task in the book "2001 Things To Do Before You Die" is at Dam Square in Amsterdam,Netherlands, a European country I visited the same month in 2007.

"Busk" is a chiefly British word which means "to entertain by dancing, singing, or reciting on the street or in a public place".

Dam Square is the very center of Amsterdam. It was once the central marketplace of Amsterdam where literally everything under the moon was sold. Now it is home to a number of street performers, dancing, singing, or reciting.

Another reason Dam Square is famous for busking is the presence of Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum which can be seen on this picture. I did not go inside for lack of time (since I will be meeting my prince Mark at the train station in a few minutes). I heard though that inside are live-sized waxworks images of real people like celebrities Bon Jovi, the late Michael Jackson and Arnold Schwartzenegger.
