The location in the low forested hills provide an excellent thermal lift for the eagles and other birds of prey. During flight shows, which take place a few times a day, you can see the bald eagles, red kites, buzzards and hawks flying over the hills and also coming pretty close to the visitors, catching the chicken nuggets from their trainer.
Its been four years since the last time I saw a show of circus Flic Flac and I was really excited to see the new show PUNXXX. The motto was – as the name of the show suggests – punk rock and most costumes and music was selected accordingly.
As usual for Flic Flac non of the acts involved animals. It was all about acrobatics, juggling, slapstick and stunts.
This year’s motto of the 23th Carnival der Kulturen in Bielefeld was Atmosfail – for an environmentally sustainable and fair atmosphere. So beside the beautiful costumes – particularity the stilt walkers were really amazing – there were lots of political statements.
Although this picture might look a little dramatic I can tell you that every thing was fine as it was taken on the traditional Easter fire.
