I was extremely tired and didn't participate this weekend in the events (sometimes I fiddle around, I'm not necessarily good at any of them) but rather played spectator and took pictures. And finally, I finished "Welcome to the Monkey House." There were some interesting highlights: Angel got second place in the handstand competition, there was a gladiator competition in which everyone had to knock the other competitors off their unicycle, and one guy did it with a baby in his arms (luckily nobody knocked him off during that portion), and some really talented artists. Also, Herman, one of the clown brothers who often host events like this, was there making jokes and being a goof the whole while.
The photo is of Karen spinning flashing pins in the dark during the gala performance of the more experienced artists. I really like how the silhouette comes out decently clear among the light swirls of the pins and the shadow.
Also, I love the city of Los Andes. I especially like going to that area inland (Los Andes, San Felipe, Llay llay) during the summer because its gorgeous, hot, and calm. I love the looks of these cities, the marks of time on the buildings, like old wooden doors with knockers and chipped paint on the houses. Some people go around on horses. It reminds me of numerous older movies that were filmed in Latin America. Plus, Los Andes has a really cute plaza and center, and I'll throw it bonus points for the puppy adoption stand yesterday.
