Yoday we celebrate the return of Fireboy to the island. His return always heralds the start of high season to me.
It is very clear that he has been working on and perfecting his art over the summer. He starts with a dazzling performance of firesticks. Which he lights with his hands! He also spends part of the performance surrounded by and dancing in fire. Wow.
His standard show with the fireballs on chains has been reved up quite a bit this year. He has three speeds he uses during the show - medium, fast and slow. Here is the fast part. Prepare to be amazed.
And here is where he slows it way down. Incredible that he can keep control of these things.
If you are on the island and happen to catch one his performances, show your appreciation for the talent, skill and originality of this guy. He lives on tips and 10 or 20 pesos in his hat is not going to kill you. It is well worth the money.
