The Circus is in Town!


I looked out my front window yesterday and saw photographers and people on chairs gathering on the street. Since I live in the historic district of the Capitol, I assumed that some studio was shooting a movie and people were gathering to see their favorite movie star. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the circus was in town and that they were promoting it by walking elephants and horses through the city. If you step outside my house and look to the right, you have a perfect view of the
Capitol building. The light blue house in the background is the Jonathan House where I live. Fortunately I do not live at the end of the block where the elephants left quite a few presents for people to remember them. I will spare you the photography. It was surreal.

lol... what your step! Although I imagine you couldn't miss a pile of elephant do-do. I hope they cleaned it up afterwards. :)
