Posted by Sarah (with a little help from dad)

Recently we went to see the Rigas Cirks (circus).  It is on the other side of the street we live on and has been there for over 100 years.  There were acrobats, animals, and some crazy clowns.  We had a great time!  My favorite part were the acrobats.  There was an act where a lady tied 1 foot to a rope and a man held on to the other foot making the lady do the splits.  Then the rope lifted them in the air about 30 feet!

Today we went to a children's opera production of Engleberts Humperdinks Ansitis un Grietina (Englebert Humperdink's Hansel and Gretl).  It was at the Jazepa Vitola Latvijas Muzikas Akademijas and was presented by the Operstudija FIGARO.  It was very nice, but the witch had a 3 inch-long nose!  The singing, dancing, costumes, and scenery were all very, very good.  Leah and I really liked it.


Here is a picture of me reading a Nancy Drew Notebook while my dad was practicing trumpet.  All the different rooms at the music academy are very nice, but very different from each other. Some of them have beautiful views of the Opera House and the park.  Here is another picture...

































That's all for now.  Visu labu!
