Street performers in Bath. These guys -- who call themselves Skate Naked -- according to their brochure: "acrobatics, fire stunts, whip tricks and general lunacy - a speciality".
As you can see, each of them have put a burning sparkler between their bottoms. The sparklers are burning rapidly which means they must perform this act quickly and skilfully otherwise their bottoms will get burnt.

    I'd been browsing your Burma photos reading your reminiscences, and thought I'd peek at this England Set to see what you might think of westerners. This was the first shot I saw...I really hope this wasn't your first experience in Europe!

    I saw these guys in Bristol a few years ago. I was february! And they were still in their thongs. I think they used larger sparklers for added warmth!
