The festivities surrounding Nuestra Señora la Virgen del Carmen (Virgin of Mt. Carmel), the patron saint of mariners — and therefore of our neighborhood, Los Boliches —ended with a bang Tuesday night. Standing on our terrace, I took 103 photos of the fireworks. I easily whittled that number down to 94. I then continued to whittle until I decided on the 20 you see here. And, although 20 may be a bit much, at least it's not 103. Click on the smallest of the images (of which there are 6) and they'll become truly explosive.
