Jose and I went to see Ripley’s Believe it or Not! in Timesquare. I really enjoyed it.
Anyway, tonight was incredibly fun, I am lucky to be around someone who is into art as I am (usually I meet people who use museum visits as a pretentious experience or they put on facade in attempts to relate to me somehow). I just really enjoy looking at art for inspiration so I’d go out of my way to see and study it.
I remember wishing that I could be in the circus when I was younger. It’s not like I had a talent or abnormality – I just liked the idea of traveling and entertaining thousands. What a thrill that might be! I imagined how the people might be traveling together – they probably were like a tight knit family. I am sure that the shows were as exhilerating… The performances done in perfection and the crowds reaction to things that are unfamiliar. I really would have ran away to a circus if available in the Caribbean where I lived, sorry mom and dad.
Here are some photos of our experience, the rest might be added to Design Lady NYC on facebook:
