I was always curious to find out what life in one of those circuses that
came to town was like. that's why i went after one for a couple of days.
from arriving somewhere, the setup, the show in the big top, life of those

This month's winner is Victoria Matveeva, from Germany, whith a

Highlight also to Arthur Gustavo Pereira Monteiro, from Brasil,

Thank you for all the participations.

Results will show on the next newsletter and be published on the
site. See how to participate >>>.

Rain, shine or fog, there's a group of beach-goers in
the Paradise Beach.
With bustle and devotion, they prepare their body and health to what come

oils, to have a smut skin the entire year. Maroon by option. Not even
