Sword Swallower, National Folk Festival

Sword Swallower Aerial Manx, National Folk Festival, Canberra, Australia

I’ve seen a lot of street performers from all over the world, but this is the first time I’ve seen an actual Sword Swallower.  In this picture, performer Aerial Manx throws his sword in the air, right after sliding it out of his throat…  pretty impressive stuff.   And if that isn’t impressive enough for you, his website has a video of him doing cartwheels while the sword is still IN his throat.

(Apologies for the silence, my computer has been hating me lately, but it’s looking all good now.)
