It has been sort of quiet since Felipe Calderon came through town. For fireworks of a friendlier nature, back in December, Francisco Toledo and a number of other artists put on a concert and a pyrotechnics display. There’s really not much story just pictures. Mostly it followed the fireworks show formula but there were two unusual parts, some mechanical turtles shooting out of a large flaming cylinder and the flight of some luminaries or unmanned hot air balloons. It's really amazing that they could get away with the luminaries as dry as things are in the winter. It probably hadn't rained in over two months prior to letting the balloons fly and it hasn't rained for two more months since. I hope that by placing a couple of pictures here that will tempt you to visit my Picasa web album.
