We are very  lucky to have become friends with Mandy and George, two amazing people who live near Poptun in the Peten region of Guatemala. One of the many reasons they are so amazing is La Semilla del Fuego (The Seed of Fire), a fire spinning group they started. The group performs at events around the region and here’s a look at their mesmerizing work, including video.
