The BEST way to see a circus, is through a child's eyes. The awe and wonder is very clear in their vision of amazment. Olga, her daughter Masha and I went out to lunch at a local Italian style resurant and then attended the afternoon circus performance. As in many Russian cities the circus is a permanant "fixture" with it's own building and set routine of acts. One of the MOST amazing acts to me, was something I have never seen before anyehere, Trained cats!! A Russian performer was booked in New York City giving his version of the train cat show. The ticket prices in NYC were nearly $50 to see the show, in Omsk I saw a very similar act and the whole circus was only 300 rubles (approximately $11.
It was a day of MANY firsts for Masha, at 10 years old, this was her first visit to a restaurant.
