Under the Medium Top
We went to a circus this past weekend. Not quite the Ringling bros or Big Apple Big Top circuses, but at 1/2 the price and seats way up front...it was perfect for us. Elephants, camels, clowns, trick dogs and ponies and even a man launched from a canon.
The kids were mesmerized the entire time.
I had a few visions of those "Animals Gone Wild" shows and was a little nervous we would get charged! But all was well.
It is fascinating to look at the people's faces and see their campers outside. What kind of life is that? Have you read "Water for Elephants?" All I could think of was the hierarchy of circus employees and how they are treated. Don't even get me started on the treatment of their animals...
