“Our flourishing nation should not stand separate from the world. It absolutely should have a worthy operatic theatre and a worthy state circus.”
"Gurbanguli Berdymukhamedov
President of Turkmenistan

Props to Turkmenistan for lifting a ban on circuses and operas.

While it may seem like a small ordeal to grant access to the bearded lady, we surely take the trapeze for granted, having never been denied it.

The 2001 law that banned the performances isn’t exactly a matter of life or death, but it seems ridiculous for the government to restrict culture in such a trivial way.

Congratulations to President Berdymukhamedov for abolishing an unreasonable and ridiculous rule that should never have been enacted in the first place.
