CIRCO ATAYDE HERMANOS 1979
We had the privilege of working for Atayde Bros. Circus for 4 months, starting before Christmas with 7 weeks in Mexico City, through the end of April, in Mexico City & Monterey we were in buildings, in a couple towns we were outdoors in Bull Rings, (and if anyone thinks our poles looked high, you should see them there). The rest of the time we were in a brand new Orange & Blue Big Top, I emphasize the color because due to the need to reinforce the cupola to accomodate the weight of the rocket, they got behind schedule and didn't have time to water proof the canvas, well it never rains in Guadalahara, guess what, it was raining Orange & Blue inside the Big Top. But it was a great experience, and I can't say enough how much we enjoyed working for them. We went back in 1992 with the Tiger Act, and both times we left with heavy hearts.
