Feliz Año!

Thanks largely to the considerable loss of life in the fire at La Terminal before Christmas, the local authorities in Antigua have finally seen sense and moved the firework stalls out of the main area of the market and posted some bomberos on permanent watch in their new location behind the buses. It has seemed like the obvious thing to do for years. (Though look where this girl is resting her elbow!)

Time to remember the big display on New Year's Eve that acted as a kind of appetiser to all the private rocket launches that burst the silence of the first few moonlit hours of 2007.
