The first time I went to a circus was when I was about 7 years old. I can't actually remember what age I was but I was pretty young. I vividly remember one of the acts coming out looking like a lion, but it turned out to be two people. I asked my mum and she said it was a Russian circus that toured at the time, and we attended the showing in Port Harcourt. Just FYI, Port Harcourt used to be a very bubbling town with lots of cool and artsy events. If it wasn't for the security situation, I know PH would have been as good as, if not better than Lagos.
As sad as I am to see this circus shut down, rendering hundreds of employees basically without jobs, I was glad we had the opportunity to witness the show. I posted photos and videos on Snapchat throughout the show, and I can say I thoroughly enjoyed the show. I wish the photos we took with the camera were better, but they're better than nothing, aye?
childhood memories for me. Have you ever been to a circus? I mean a real circus, not like Cirque du Soleil - which I have also been to.
