      tourists hire bodyguards during Carnival. I think that's more practical in our case. [giggle]

      Buddist Monk Fire Walking Ritual
      A Buddhist monk runs barefoot over fire as he takes part in the traditional "hi-watari", or fire-walking ritual, which heralds the coming of spring at the Chichibu Fire Festival in the town of Nagatoro, Saitama Prefecture on March 6, 2011. Hundreds of people followed Buddhist ascetics and participated in fire walking for "purifying the mind and body" and to pray for good health and safety.       AFP PHOTO/Toru YAMANAKA /Getty Images
