Noche de San Juan

Our last week in Segovia was a very fun week. It all began with the Night of San Juan. They had a big bonfire in the Plaza, right below our school. The firefighters (or bomberos, much cooler in Spanish than in English) kept the fire under control. The people would write 3 wishes or 3 bad things that happened to them last year on a piece of paper and hand them to the firefighters. The firefighters would them put the papers in the fire. It's supposed to make the bad things go away or your wishes come true. We were up in the school, so couldn't hand the firefighters a paper. It was a lot of fun though. Here's pictures of the bonfire.
