Be On the Lookout

Eight members of "Circuba" (right), a Cuban circus, defected from the Feria Internacional de Querétaro yesterday. (Or, as another paper put it: "Cubans Escape from Circus.") Their plan, apparently, is to "ask for asylum in the US," an indication that for all the accomplishments of the Cuban education system, geographic fluency is still a little weak among circus folk. On the other hand, there may be some method to the madness. If you're trying to blend in dressed like this, Querétaro is not the worst place you could hide.
