Plaza de Acho. Lima, Peru
by Robert N. Corbet
In the 1970's, I was a professional figure skater from the U.S.A. and we toured South America and played for overone month at Plaza de Acho, Lima. They made a canvas over the stadium so I would not melt.
I loved it there.
We also became a part of a circus there, called El Circo del Norte Americano. We had a tank of ice for us, a center ring which had the tigers, elephants, lions camels, etc. and high wire acts and clowns.
I really did love my time at the arena and would love to come back one day and to see it again.
I would love to have a picture of the Plaza de Acho.
I was too busy skating, doing up to 11 shows a week, to take any.
Thank you for letting me tell my tale.
