A participant in “La Recuerda” (The Remembrance) festival throws a fireball at his opponents in the main street of Nejapa, some 20 km north of San Salvador, on August 31, 2011. The Recuerda tradition, celebrated in honour of Saint Jeronimo, dates from 1922 and recalls the 1658’s eruption of the San Salvador volcano that destroyed Nejapa.
