I really enjoyed show of Atlanta Groundhog Day. THe stage wasn`t high enough and the lighting not very good either, and there wasn`t a single juggler who wouldn`t drop. A couple of acts made fun of Bush- John Natens took his shirt off and juggled Tennis raquets. There was a guy with a strange mask and with a unicycle at the start he was also making fun of Bush a girl made fun of Hula-Hoop acts another girl juggled and made fun of Gearoge Bush, she was funny. And this emcee Michael made fun of Bush too. En Sud America odiampos a Bush y queremos a Obama, despues de la conferencia he aprendido conmo desaparecen las cartas, muy entretenido. La conferencia estuvo espectacular.
