seven deadly sins, originally uploaded by jenniferlarson.

I happened on this Holy Saturday event in Puebla just as it was about to start. Eight of these figures hung from trees. One-by-one a man lit the firecrackers attached to them, which spun them around, then exploded (this one is post-explosion). They represented the 7 deadly sins, and Judas.

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.
