Ventanas was partying at 3 am when I went to bed, an it was still the same after 9am when I got up.  Nothing has changed until now, in the early afternoon.  Music is everywhere...

Shortly before midnight I took my camera and went out to record the welcoming of the New Year party.  Unfortunately I did not recharge the batteries and the camera refused to co-operate just after a few shots...   But I think that I covered the most of what there was to cover.  The few fires that I encountered were not as spectacular as I expected.  And I did not know where to go to see the more dramatic ones.

Thanks God this artistic creation wasn't destined for burning. 
It was still there half an hour later, when I came back although it was being dismantled.

I wasn't the only one driven by curiosity.  I noticed a family of six that seemed to be as much intrigued as myself.   Did you think that they wouldn't make it without a minivan?

These guys will be burned soon...

They are burning now.  I took the shot from farther away, as they were filled with firecrackers

And here is another poor soul.  I wonder who he/she was and why he/she deserved to be burned.

Of course, since I am making this post, it only means that I came back home in one piece and no-one raped me or took away my camera...   At least not yet.

Hi there from sunny Brunswick Heads, Australia

Have had a successful change to Alaska in '09 through your site and have another arranged for Nova Scotia later this year. Plus I am hosting someone from Reunion Island in April - all through your free site. Excellent!
