New Years Eve
Yucatán folks have a good time on New Years Eve, with lots of fireworks and their speciality, burning the old man. Just as the seconds tick down to the new year, people bring out an "old man" stuffed with paper to the street, douse him with a flammable and light him up. The series of photos above, taken by Jan, happened very quickly. But the fireworks didn't! I think I heard them all night!
