I have been dying to see the Circus of Bogotá and the place that surrounds it, the long lost train station area of Bogotá when time stopped in the 1950s. A limited part of the station can be seen by the tourists who take the 30 km/h museum train to Zipaquirá. But when we visited the circus yesterday, we escaped to check out the huge area of abandoned tracks, locomotives and wagons. The rain was pouring down and it was getting dark, so the photo quality isn’t amazing. But thanks to these conditions, we could wander around without anyone stopping us.

My infinite gratitude to circus director Natalia who invited us to celebrate her 40th birthday in the beautiful circus of Bogotá. I hope I’ll be back soon to show more pictures of the circus tent and the talented students of Fundación Circo para todos.
