Mallory Square

We only went as far as Key West one evening to watch the sunset. Well actually I had my back to the sunset to watch the tourists. I was leaning against a chain link fence and as the sunset a crowd of tourists pressed up against me to get a better view. Many resorted to thrusting their cameras in the air trying to get a perfect shot. Two bag pipers were wailing the whole time. A mystic sat at a table offering tarot card readings. There were performers in every corner of the square. Some juggled fire while others acted like statues. This stands in stark contrast to Orlando where street performers are banned.
