It's advertising the circus. Last night there were camels and an elephant in the parking lot and the tent was up. Maybe that's where they were keeping our ponies.

You'll know. They roll trucks through town - often with animals - announcing it with a loud speaker. They've been here a couple of days already. I saw them in the Tobolandia parking lot when I returned from the beach on Tuesday. Tonight may be opening night!

That elephant and a few camels have been there for a couple of days now. The elephant isn't looking too happy.

Today is opening day of the Circo according to the plane flying over my house. Didn't catch all of the announcement, but there's a show a 6pm and another at 8:30pm.

Cool, I saw and heard that plane too. Only in Mexico can a plane fly over the houses, under 500 ft., at bare stall speed, with a blaring loud speaker......jajajaja.

Damn circus! If i have to listen to that f**king plane flying overhead blaring that loudspeaker one more time, I'd be tempted to fire a missile launcher at him! And I thought they brought in a law to prevent animals from being used in traveling circuses?

Luckily next year, these poor animals won't have the trauma of being shipped around in traveling circuses in Mexico. Glad to see that this legislation has passed!

Nice photo.

By the way, the tickets are $50 for kids, $100 for adults, and $150 for the first two rows, which is called the "palco", and is a sort of private box sectioned off from the general grand stand. In my experience with these small town Mexican circuses, there is absolutely no reason to pay for the palco, unless you just want to smell the acts. If it was a real high-quality circus like in the big cities, the palco is great, but generally it's more fun in the stands with the riff-raff. (One time in Morelia, a tiger sprayed pee - a lot of it - on the people in the palco next to us. No, really.)

There's also a third matinee show on weekends, at 4pm.

We went last night. Sat in the upper $100 pesos seats. As Rosa said there is really no reason to be down low and up front unless you are taking little kids. The little kids up front can get involved with some of the show.

The show was really funny and good. There were some very talented people performing the juggling, trampoline and trapeze acts. There was very little involvement with any of the animals. Basically the elephant came out, performed a few tricks and then let the kids get their pictures taken on top of him. At no time was he whipped or even directed. He seemed to perform the tricks on his own. He was one smart elephant.

It is worth checking out. More like a circus solei show.

Guess I'll have to go see what is happening.

The first day I was in MX, I was in Torreon. There was 5 lanes of traffic each way. The light turned red, a kid that looked about 10 brought out a 20' ladder, climbed up and stood on the top, lit 3 torches and put on a great juggling act. Then he put out the torches, climbed down and took his ladder off just as the light changed green.

His buddies were coming down the traffic collecting tips.

I looked at that and could think of at least 30 misdemeanors and several felonies.

I remember thinking "You don't see this in the US".
