Beijing Acrobatic Show
Today, I had to go back to work, so Nir went off on his own to see the Great Wall at Badaling and later, saw the Beijing Acrobatic Show – finally. I would have loved to go with him, even though I did not like Badaling very much the first time, so I was getting a little bit frustrated at work because they did not give me anything to do the whole day. I was just sitting there, trying to occupy myself so the time would pass, while I could have climbed one of the 7 wonders of the world. But what can you do, I am not here for pleasure I am here to work… At 5.30 PM, I took a cab to the Chaoyang Theater and waited for Nir, so we could buy our tickets for the show. He showed up a couple of minutes after me and we bought the tickets and then went for a snack at Pizza Hut.
The Beijing Acrobatic Show at the Chaoyang Theater started at 7.15 PM and it was one of the best and most amazing shows I have seen so far. They showed everything, from human pyramids to jugglers, contortionists, acrobats jumping through hoops and fascinating bike acrobatics. There was not a minute where you could hold yourself back from making sounds like ohhh, ahhh, wow, did you see that, amazing, holy shit etc. One part was just as amazing as the next one. It was really great and I can only recommend it to everybody who visits Beijing, so if you make it to this fascinating city, go check it out!
