One of our very favourite things in Ecuador (no, don't cue Julie Andrews...) is their New Years celebration. You probably saw the post from last year (A Flame-tastic New Year!), but we still can't resist posting photos for this year. The excitement starts by going to find your effigy...if you were too lazy to preplan and make your own...
|Pick a body|
|Pick a face (see below for final product)|
|Stylin', I know!|
|In to the fire, Rico!|

Because we were all caught up in burning Rico, we missed the start of the big fires for the community installations, but we do have before and after pictures. We'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
|After! (We were really late to the party!)|
|Obama...do you feel the love?|
|Fires as far as the eye can see!|
|Fires and fireworks|
|Once in a lifetime picture...what a fluke!|
|Cutting a rug with a random Ecuadorian, since Ron doesn't dance!|
