The Fire Festival is old news now since it wrapped a weekend previous.  But, when the guy in his thrift shop Chinese robe and cowboy hat (an odd fashion combo, I say) let a kid push the propane gizmo...next kid in line: "Let me, let me!"

The Chinese Cowboy surprised me.  I thought he would be a San Francisco nightcrawler.  He is a Steamboat Springs guy.  Friendly, accommodating...that`s how I got his dragon, belching full bore from Hades here.

Not bad.

They are promising to come again next January.
