You Crazy!

I found this video on my friend Brynn's blog, and it is so crazy and cool. Here is what they said about it:

"In the city of Tarragona, Spain, castellers gather every two years to see who can build the highest, most intricate human castles. This uniquely Catalan tradition requires astonishing strength, finesse, and balance. Not to mention courage"

How did people not die in those spills? And what parents are letting their little girls be the tops of these towers?

Whenever we make it to Spain, we will plan around going to this event (or the one where they throw tomatoes at each other - or the running of the bulls - all equally entertaining)

I just watched that the other day! So crazy! I'm totally bummed that I missed all the crazy stuff that goes on in Spain when I was there.
P.S. I think I know this Brynne's fiance Tanner - he was Alan's mission companion! I remember he said he did running of the bulls, that's crazy!

My heart almost stopped when I saw those little kids climbing. And I may have teared up. I blame the hormones. Pretty incredible though!
