If you are bored with this site, it's not my fault.

Good Friday, de-nailing of Jesus and townwide stations of cross..

Semana Santa is a big deal in Peru and we’re glad to have stuck around town to be apart of all the activities during the week.  Our house was choose as the 6th station of the cross (“Jesus carrying the cross”) during the town-wide station procession.  We had to decorate our corner real well and I got to read a passage and lead the prayer for the roaming crowd.  Finishing at the church w a long mass and interesting ‘de-nailing’ ceremony where they take the body of Christ and do another procession with the ‘coffin’ around the plaza.
