epa03146935 (12/21) Dutch clown Peter Vrinds, aka Clown Puk, touches noses with a young boy watching the Africlown show staged under a tree in an informal settlement in Johannesburg, South Africa, 01 March 2012. The clowns simply arrived in the poor community and by walking through the shacks in the township ended up getting people to sit under a huge tree to watch their show. In most African cultures meetings are always held under trees in villages. Once a year, Dutch clowning organization Africlowns travels to South Africa to perform clown shows for the handicapped, poor and township schools in an attempt to put a temporary smile on the faces of those watching their shows.
