If You're Curious

Oh, how the Tongginator loved seeing the Beijing Acrobat Show! The Husband and I were just glad we managed to stay awake for the entire performance, since last time we both dozed off for several acts. And yes, y’all, you can “see” said dozing on our previous trip’s video as the camera shots bob in time with our nodding heads. Just for the record, though, said sleepiness in no way reflected the quality of the show, instead it communicated a ton about jet lag at four in the afternoon once one has traveled half-way around the world.
I don’t have the energy to write much tonight, so instead I’ll simply share a few of my favorite photographs taken during the acrobat show. And yeah, yeah, yeah, I know we weren’t supposed to take photos during the show. But I did anyway. Because I am obnoxious like that. At least I didn’t use my flash out of respect for the performers.
Oh, and because I didn’t want to get caught.
After the show, the Tongginator excitedly shared that she no longer wanted to own a lemonade stand when she grew up. Now she wants to be an acrobat. Aim high, I told her, as long as you don’t risk life and limb on a tightrope or something.
