good friday, originally uploaded by jenniferlarson.

We headed down the twisty mountain road back to Puebla, stopping once for us queasy folk to get some air. The largest Good Friday procession in Mexico was passing right in front of our hotel, so the driver couldn’t drop us in front of our hotel. We had to process for a half a block with them to get there.

Here the procession ended at the cathedral for a ceremony, and then processed out again.

Palm Sunday procession in Cuetzalan. The procession started in one church and wound through the rainy cobblestone streets to the cathedral. This statue of Jesus on a donkey was carried by men the whole way. Jesus is wearing plastic sheeting and poncho to keep dry.
