Knie Circus and a Duckling

As we waited to enter the Swiss National Knie Circus last night at the Zurich Lakefront, David photographed the cutest little duckling swimming near the shore:

Turning 180 degrees, with our backs to the lake, we could see this hungry llama...

In the show, the llamas were amazingly organized and well-trained as they trotted around the ring in various formations and leapt over each other in synchrony. I had no idea llamas were so teachable. And they looked so soft, too.

There were some insanely flexible, strong, daring, and balanced athletes performing. One troupe included a guy who stepped from head to head of his standing colleagues (no hands). Later, another guy stood on his head on top of his colleagues' feet (no hands, they were on their backs on the ground), and then they passed him around from person to person (on his head on their feet, no hands).
This is another troupe:

Now that brings back memories. I'd almost forgotten the Knie Circus that we went to every year while we lived there. Do you remember the clowns?

It was always something fun to look forward to!
