1. READING Hi! My name is Isabelle and I’m from America. I’m an acrobat. I can juggle, do tightropewalking and unicycle and I am also a contorsionist. I can sit on my head!! I’m a member of an acrobatic group. There are 150 of us from 40 different countries. At the moment, we’re in London so my hotel room is my home. I get up at 10:55 a.m. and order breakfast. Then I have a shower and email my friends in America and chat to them. During my routine, I am 10 metres above the ground. There is no safety net and sometimes I’m nervous but I love performing. It’s amazing. The show starts at 5 p.m and finishes at 7 p.m. from Friday to Sunday. It costs £ 20 for children under 12 and £ 35 for adults, so many children say they are under 12 but it is not true. After the show, we usually go to the cafeteria and have dinner together. Last week, we went to a club after the show and we had some beers, I don’t like beer but there wasn’t any other thing to drink. We went to bed at 3 a.m. so the next day I couldn’t get up until lunch time.
