Our first busk: Hyde Park
Stella and I had gotten our busking licences a few days previously, and with excitement and trepidation, we hauled our milk-crates etc. to Hyde Park and set up on a park bench. Stella broke the ice while I sat there and doodled. Then suddenly we had an unbroken supply of customers (at times, a queue of two!), and a couple of hours later, we had used up all the 'letterhead' I had drawn up. It was a success! We had made about $17 each (this is a business proposition, after all).
