This weekend was pretty un-eventful. But i do have some pretty sweet pictures from the Procession today. Every Sunday during Pasqua...or Lent, the people here have a procession, in which they carry huge wooden floats with Jesus and Mary on them. They even have the women carry a float..it almost fell. Also all the men dress up in these purple robes with head coverings. They also lay down huge designes of flowers on the ground and then when the procession starts, everyone just walks on over the flowers. They call them "alfombras" which means carpets. It was very interesting to see how much the put an emphasis on Jesus on the cross and almost never talk about Him being risen and alive.....
- Today the Spring Break team from Bethel gets here...we are going to have supper with them.
