Very productive and totally exhausting day. We drove to La Molina to connect with a clown in a wheel chair whom I had met last week. I was very happy to find him and he was as generous and kind as could be.

Then we headed to the market in Callao, perhaps one of the riskiest places, security-wise, that I have photographed on this trip. There are lots of known pickpockets and gangs there, so my two bodyguards were stressed by the end of the afternoon. They had my back the whole time I photographed a crowd with three performers, itinerant comics. The humor was vulgar and funny.

After 8 hours, 9 rolls. Thirsty and full of dust, I got back home and fell into two-hour nap. Great.
