The Circus is coming

La Palma doesn’t see many travelling circuses, probably because the ferry fares work out so expensive. I think the last time one visited was about four years ago.

The Gran Circo Mundial (Big World Circus) advertises Pirates of the Carribean acrobats, a crocodile hypnotist, twins on dancing horses, trapeeze artists, jugglers, lions, tigers, and clowns.
