Santa Semana No. 20

Finally, the street is lined with two rows of at least a hundred mourners, beautifully dressed in black, each with a candle lantern, to escort Christ to his burial. I wish I could have captured an image of the coffin for you. It is very ornamental, weighing in at three tons, and is carried by thirty-six men.

James, this is an amazing photo. The seriousness of it is evident.
