Today we went to two family circuses in the hills of El Salvador de Lima. Both circuses are owned by the Castaneda brothers, one known as Perno, the other Sonrisol.

Perno had recuperated from the day before and we went inside the tent. I was able to shoot wide open as it was sunny in Lima today and there was enough light.

Sonrisol was giving free tickets to school children for tonight’s performance as it is the last night they will stay in that neighborhood. They hope the children bring their parents in as well. There was a crowd of kids around him, The normal entry fee for a child is 2 soles and for an adult, 3 soles, roughly, a dollar.

I finished 7 rolls today and will take a break until Monday.
