Great balls of fire

Tyler offered to babysit so that Tía Marisa and I could enjoy the quintessential Catalan festival – the Correfoc del Mercè. We kept our distance from the showers of sparks but neither of us could resist moving in for a closer look when former teen idol Rick Schroeder and family crossed our path. Later we learned that this was an historic Correfoc as someone had finally realized that running a bunch of “fire-breathing” dragon floats through a crowd of people in the center of town just might be a tad bit dangerous.
