Jumping through hoops to please us. Beijing, China
26th November, 2009
This is more of a picture post so I’ll just give you the background:
We went to see an acrobatics show in Beijing on a tour organized by our hostel. The performers were pretty young but, being that they train them from when they are five years old here, they were still a hell of a lot better than anything you see in Duffy’s Circus. A lot of really impressive stuff – mostly from girls who couldn’t have been more than eight or nine years old but were strong enough to lift a horse and light enough to balance on the hand of a teenage boy.
Lots of “ooh”-ing and “ahh”-ing. Fun times were had by all.
