2010 April Semana Santa - Easter Week

Overlooking Antigua during Easter week -
Volcano Agua in the background

Good Friday Processional - Pilgrims dressed in
purple, signifying the royal blood of Christ - carpets
made of colored sawdusts is a form of sacrifice

A large wooden platform with an image of Christ
carrying the cross is carried by pilgrims over the
sawdust carpet begins the Semana Santa processional on Good Friday

Senior missionaries at the arch with Volcano Agua
peeking through.
