Zok and I had to go to the part of town where most of the foreign embassies are.
As we were walking back towards the subway station- we saw elephants, camels, and horses grazing in the park.
The circus has come to town(!)
(The exclamation after the sentence really is inside my head because in all honestly I do feel a small sharp stab of "thrilling!" in my heart.)
Recently I watched a documentary about a family circus and how hard they work to get crowds in against the competition of our more modern entertainments.
I asked Zok "Would you rather go to the circus (he has never, ever been to see the circus) or go to the opera?
It looks like next month, we are going to the circus.
