Pitillo Circo de Alegria

October 4, 2016

Circus in Peru!  We've seen the big circus tent by the mall for weeks now.  Last week we asked about it.  On Tuesday and Wednesday the tickets were 2 for the price of 1, so we decided to go Tuesday evening with the Hartmans.  We were told by people it would be a one man show, clown, jokes, and magic tricks. We were anxious and excited to go see it, but weren't expecting much.

 It wasn't the kind of circus they have in Utah.  There weren't any elephants, lions, trapeze acts, or horses.  We weren't expecting it to be very fancy, but were so surprised when it started.  It was very entertaining and we were all very surprised at how good it was!  Each act was great.  We laughed and clapped and clapped and laughed, our hands got sore from clapping.  It was amazing how much fun it was and we all enjoyed it. It was fantastic! For a while we forgot we were in Peru.

I took pictures and Sandy took most of these pictures, thanks Sandy for sharing.

We sat in the blue seats, they were 96 soles, because it was 2 for 1 night Wayne and I both got in for that price, which is about $28.80.   They were really good seats, actually they were perfect.  

I'm taking a picture of Sandy taking this picture of me.

He was dressed like an American Indian at first, then he did this flying like an eagle routine.

This was really an incredible show.  Check out You Tube for the live acts.
