The start of Semana Santa
The weeks before the Holy Week we watched one parade at a time on a single street or block. The week of, the entire city clears and then refills with found and old carrying bags of saw dust, colored sand and flowers. They work all night creating scenes from the Bible or scenes depicting an aspect of faith. As the light begins to creep into the darkness and day turns to light it is always a miracle they have finished in time.
