From Moscow with Love

With Christmas festivities just around the corner, we thought there was no better way to kick start the season than with a trip to the see the bright lights of the Moscow State Circus when they arrived in town.

  2. Well you certainly look in very good shape Paul :-)! So athletic!! Sounds like you had a good time.

    Are your tulip bulbs already planted? Still have to do part of mine, but the soil is too wet :-(

    Have a lovely evening!

    1. Well thank you Madelief. its just my morning stretching routine:)

      Yes, all my Tulips are now in the ground. I went with a mass planting of Pink Diamond in the end. Should go quite well with any forget-me-nots that spring up here and there. You still have lots of time to get them in. I use a long handled bulb planter which makes the job so much easier. Happy planting. x

  3. Wow - such a treat: the atmosphere of a circus, the beautiful artists with their absolute mastering of their bodies, and the seemingly lightness when they do so difficult things - that's elegance in pure form.

  5. It is almost impossible to believe someone could just pop over to Moscow as I live in Texas! Popping over to London is hard enough. This must be an amazing adventure. Is it snowing there by the buckets? You can come here, Paul, anytime. I have a really nice guest room and we have big tall buildings, professional sports teams, hairdressers, good gossip and lots of cocktail places.

    1. Well we are off to Moscow in the spring Marsha but this was the touring Moscow state circus so I just had to ask Hercules to drive me there this time. You sold me on Texas, I'm packing my bag now! x

    1. Superb fun Pamela, I love the simple old fashioned Circus minus the animals though please. The stunts were great fun and with some super tasty Russian Hot dogs on offer who can resist!

  9. Paul looks like a fun time! The closest I get to anything like this is when Cirque du Soliel comes to town. You must have had some super seats. I love the middle photo!!
    Hurts me to just look at that one guy flipped over. Crazy! That said..the circus is looking pretty hot! ;)
    Have a fun weekend Paul! Thanks for the night out at the circus! xx

    1. I love Cirque du Soleil Kim and have seen nearly all the shows in Las Vegas.
      The Moscow state is a much more traditional circus with an old school edge to it which I like.
      Mr Flipped Over was quite incredible. I think I need to up my Bikram Yoga efforts!
