Good Friday in San Miguel de Allende

this was taken while a priest was reading from the bible. Men dressed as Roman soldiers marched in front of the cross.

 My daughter, Cynthia, who is now living next door to me took theses photos yesterday when we ventured into town to absorb the color and energy of the celebrations and processions. We missed the last procession, but not the crowds. People flock to San Miguel for Holy week. The hotels and restaurants are full and the streets are overflowing with tourists.

Venders lined the streets selling religious images.

loading flowers from the municipal market.

So much to choose from...

I bought a very heavy bunch of flowers for our meditation center on Sunday

Houses were decorated with symbolic wheat grass, sour oranges and chamomile flowers

Still walking.
