The Circus

Going to the Circus

Hippodrome de Boitsfort

As this trip to Belgium was geared towards entertaining our little guy, we also took him to the circus. This was a small-tent circus that happened to be traveling through Brussels while we were there. They let you sit a lot closer to the action than any circus I've gone to in the United States, which was an added bonus until the tigers sprayed the first couple of rows -- though fortunately not us. I wish I knew the name of this circus and I was hoping the poster might shed some light. The lettering seems to be Italian; I couldn't translate the top part (maybe it's a name?) but the lower-left seems to translate loosely to "Army of Clowns" which does make some sense. Oh well.
