This poignant image by @lasevillaquenovemos captures the desolation felt by all those who had their processions cancelled by heavy rains on Thursday and Friday evenings. Things cleared up for the Madrugá but many hearts were broken this year.
My favourite photo of this year’s Semana Santa (so far). The littlest costalero! So cute. I think most of the processions went out today, but now it’s raining so not sure what’s happening. I imagine that many will have sought refuge. Rain and thunderstorms predicted over the next couple of days, which will pretty much shut down the two most important days of the week. Stay tuned…
Was finally feeling well enough to get out today, and took in a bit of lunes santo (holy Monday). Sometimes I like just wandering around and seeing which processions I run into. Today it was the Cautivo Jesús and El Beso de Judas. I may still make it out to see Museo come out, as it’s just around the corner from me. Or I may just go to bed. Not quite sure yet. Cautivo Jesús

I’ve mentioned Pilar & Pilar before. Daughter Pili was part of my Nuclear Medicine Team while I was undergoing treatment, and before that she was my English student. That is to say, we’ve known each other a long time! And it’s always great when we can find time to get together for lunch, along with mama Pilar. 🙂
