Capoeira Guy

This could be Graduado Popeye, an instructor in Capoeira in Cork (I never asked, but a leaflet handed to me has his name on it). He was able to jump up and forward, twist himself around mid-air and come down facing the way he had come! He was accompanied by other students of this Brazilian martial art and performed other manoeuvres. Impressive!

World Book Day Singer (3/4)

Serenading a passer by. Some women loved it, others got a fit of the giggles and some ran away!

World Book Day Singer (1/4)

Cork celebrated World Book Day a little late but it didn’t stop the organisers putting on a great show!
This gentleman performed for the crowds outside the City Library and attempted to serenade many of the females who walked past.

This is what the street entertainer in yesterday’s picture was looking at! 🙂
