Mexicans love their fireworks. I mean really love them. All day, all night, there are random explosions going off around the city to celebrate something. If you visit Mexico and have a birthday here, expect a few fireworks to be exploded in your honour. In fact, if they don’t set fire to a quantity of fireworks big enough to make the British artillery attack at the Somme look like a damp squib…well, they just don’t like you.
It was Christmas. And the brother in laws kids were visiting from Milwaukee. Naturally, this meant it was necessary to buy a big bag full of potent rockets, loud bangers and…well, some of them were just plain old TNT style explosives. I thought I’d video the proceedings, as they set about blowing up dead sea creatures, coconuts, bottles, shells and cans.
