My kids were requesting it for a long time so last Friday we had a Circus in town and the three of us (dad is not very fond of Circus) were there. Dani went to the Circus five or six years ago but he doesn’t remember it so I can say this was the first time for both.
I was a little afraid of Catherine’s reaction to the Tigers because she is afraid of cats and dogs (and other moving animals and insects) so when the Circus started and the tigers came to the cage I said to myself: this is it.
As soon as Catherine heard the initial music she started shivering, she hid her head on my chest and grabed my arms. The tigers came into the cage and she refused to look at them. It took me a while to convince her that they were like cats, just a little bigger and that they were not coming out of the cage. She started looking at them after a while and even smiled but she continued to shiver and grab me until the tigers left.
Then came the clowns, jugglers, dancers, snakes, crocodiles, ponies, ostriches, more clowns and other artists and she was thrilled with all the show.
Dani liked the show but as usual he was always moving from his seat, talking and well…the usual.
Circus is quite expensive therefore this was a show we won’t repeat for a while. I regret not having taken the camera to take a few photos but what really matter is what we saw…live.
