 Hello, everyone!  This is the Blog Tech again with another post from Key West.  Today I'm going to show some more pictures from the nightly Sunset Festival; most of these feature a man who did some spectacular tricks involving the juggling of flaming objects while on top of a very high unicycle.  In addition, you will also be able to see lovely pictures of the sunset.
 This is a shot of the boardwalk where the Sunset Festival takes place.
 Here is the Fire Guy, preparing for his show.  Note: I don't know his name, so I'm just going to go with Fire Guy.
 To his right is his assistant.

 The water on the ground was used to indicate where the audience should gather (and what was considered to be too close!)
 For the first part of his trick, he ascended this ladder.  He asked a little girl from the crowd to throw him the juggling implements; you can see her in the foreground.

 Here she is throwing him one of the implements.
 What are these things actually called?  Juggle-things?
 I can't do this standing on the ground, let alone on a ladder.

 Here he is tossing the Juggle-things back to her.
 The sunset was setting quickly at this point.,
 In order to ascend the unicycle, he had four members of the audience come and hold it steady for him.

 Here he is, doing something that I will absolutely never even try.

 Lighting the implements on fire.

 And juggling!

 Look at that sunset.  And the flaming Juggle-things.

 For his last trick, he caught his hat with his shoe.

 And then kicked his hat up in the air....
 Where it landed on his head!
 This sure was something, and the sunset was absolutely gorgeous.
Tomorrow, I will be writing The Food Post.  Thanks for reading!
