As a 26-year-old Yiwu guy, Darren Ding has stayed in Germanyfor 5 years. He spent 4 whole years in Nuremberg for a bachelor's degree and is now in Munich for aMaster's degree.
Darren has been to most of the European countries for the past 5 years and experienced a wide range of beautiful scenery and exotic cultures."Actually the life in European countries is alike, but totallydifferent from that in our country."Darren stated that one typical difference is what this article is talking
about - BUSKING IN THE STREET.
"We can see buskers busking in the foreign streets ON the television when we were children, and I believe that most of Chinese people at myage haven't witnessed this kind of scenerybefore, while all of myforeign classmates treat it as a common sense."
Darren confessed that was why his German classmates were astonished at his surprises and strong interest when he really saw buskers busking in the streets."There is no busking in the Chinese streets, is there? "
When he was asked bysuch a question, Darren always replied as: Yes, there is. But not as entertaining as yours." Based on Darren's introduction, busking, or street performance, is the practice of performing in public places for gratuities, which are generallyin the form of moneyand edibles.
Buskers maydo acrobatics, animal tricks, clowning, comedy, dancing, singing, juggling, miming and a mime variation where the artist performs as a living statue, musical performance, puppeteering, snake charming,storytelling and etc.
