It was amazing Caine. Quite astounding. These two guys in the suit were dancing on these poles high above the ground and leaping from them. But forget the death defying stuff. The creature was so expressive, so puppyish, it was gorgeous to watch. I was transfixed.

It's shame you missed it SLG. But it was very, very crowded and Arctic to boot. Despite the crowds, we managed to bump into two different people like this was Hicksville, pop. 12.

Dude, there are people in that?? I thought i was about 2 feet tall.
I love the last shot because you took a photo of someone taking the same photo... heehee.

yeah, those cats know a thing or two about movement. I used to go watch a dragon dance team in Leicester as they rehearsed - it's not just death defying, some of that stuff shouldn't be physically possible! Nice pics, I somehow knew you'd be first.

Wendle - There were two blokes in it. So when they jumped, as in the last one, it had to be perfectly synchronised.

Para - thanks. It was really very elegant stuff. Pisses all over the Pantomime Horse. I would have watched more but the kids were freezing.

That sounds astonishing, what a great thing to be able to watch.

Nige - there was a good atmosphere with lots of laughing and people enjoying themselves throwing snappers. And it was absolutely heaving with people. But it was very cold and so we couldn't stay out in it too long. No aimless stroll for me yesterday ...

Lovely pics - I didn't realise they were people either until I read the comments . I thought it was a puppet! It sounds a wonderful experience. I expect it is one of those things the children will always remember.
