My friend Zoe has finished her summer as a nanny to a well-off Chinese family, & is heading back to Switzerland to continue her university studies there. As a going away gift, I took her to see a Chinese acrobat show.
The entertainment included a variety of acts in addition to the amazing gymnasts. There was a plate spinner, a magician, a juggler, a knife thrower, a woman who balanced a tower of glasses on her chin, & a man who spun a huge porceline pot on his head.
We had a great view of the stage from the 7th row, where we were close enough to see the acrobats' muscles quiver.
