The week of Semana Santa has arrived! For a few years, we tried to continue with our clinics but health-care needs drop drastically! So, I decided to fly up to Tikal for a night and take a couple of guided tours.
Manuel was driving Julie and Mike to the airport so I rode along with them. On the way back, Manuel dropped me off in Antigua. I unpacked most of my stuff and then headed out into the streets to see what I could see :)
I found the processions and started tagging along. Here, Jesus is with some of his followers. Now, it is important to remember that people pay large amounts of money to participate in these activities and they continue the whole week.
Jesus is approaching John the Baptist.
Stay tuned for Tikal!
