Turista Libre heads to the big top for the Beijing Chinese Circus, two hours of Asian acrobats, lion dancers, gutsy hat-tossing routines, elaborate jump rope acts, and, of course, saucy clowns. Sharing the limelight are a loinclothed Tarzan heartthrob and his luscious lady counterpart Nikita, a Maroon 5-singing tiger tamer whose Bengal beauties answer to names like Shakira and Britney. Sounds like some bizarre dream already, doesn’t it.
The $40 ticket includes private transportation from the border, circus admission and a preshow dinner at one of Tijuana’s many Chinese restaurants, a surreal experience in so much that ordering Kung Pao pollo in even the most basic English never fails to be an adventure. Later, a nightcap downtown at La Mija, Mezcalera’s backroom that after recently undergoing a complete China-girl makeover is now on par with a Shanghai boudoir.
