8:18 PM - Acrobats - Rachel

As a treat, we booked on a trip to see chinese acrobats. The tour guy took our money, then walked us round the corner to the theatre! We were wondering how much we'd been charged to be escorted to the theatre, but it turned out that our tickets were substantially cheaper than the official ticket cost. The acrobats were fun. There were tumblers leaping through hoops with dazzling accuracy, ridiculously flexible gymnasts, a great display on bicycles, and comedy monks. Well I don't think they were meant to be comedy, but they were dressed in orange robes, and most of their act involved them shouting a lot and waving bendy swords around. Well it made us giggle anyway!
