The circus

No, not my trip. Not even the US presidential election. I genuinely went to the circus last night – Cirque de Soleil, actually and it was totally wonderful! It’s all acrobatics, dance and music, all very commedia dell’arte. Fantastic from a technical point of view, in the way they put up and take down the various apparatus and move people across the stage. Also from an acrobatic point of view, especially the trapeze-style acts. I’ve been pretty cultural here, one way or another, with theatre in Philly, a few films here and there and I hope to get to a show or two when I’m in New York. And some lovely meals have been had along the way, including a great pile of crab and oysters at the Oceanaire last night. The fall of the dollar is helping me to enjoy it as well!!
