Yesterday the three of us went to the Italian circus which is located inside the Shaáb Park. My company had arranged the tickets at a sweet price (K.D.1/person) and compared to the standard K.D.5/person, this was a must-go. Mind you, it turned out to be excellent value for money, however, at the original price; I wouldn’t recommend it at all.
The show was scheduled from 8pm-10pm and we got there on time. Once we entered the large tent I was surprised to see that the centre ring/stage was pretty small. Anyhow, it started 10 minutes later and they had a variety of items including acrobatics, a clown, snakes and alligators, a shisha-smoking camel, horses, a crazy monkey on a wild pony, cute dogs and of course; tigers!
Rohail took all the sounds and lighting surprisingly well and seemed to enjoy the fun. It seems our practice of making him play and sleep in all sorts of environments (movie playing, loud music, quiet, dark, light, etc.) is paying off. A lot of my colleagues and friends from work were also there and we had a good time overall.
I captured a lot of pictures but the continously changing lights didn’t help much and the results came out fairly poor. Just when I think I have got the hang of my camera, I encounter something like this!
