Antigua - Holy Week

A chance to hear brass bands playing funeral dirges, see purple Ku Klux Clan style robed figures, carpets of flowers or fruit and vegetables. Churches may have locals on their knees creaking their way down the aisle towards the altar. The devout lead processions and there is plenty of praying. Last night we also experienced our room wobble as a 4.5 earthquake struck nearby. A slightly surreal night. Locals wander around with their shopping, which may include a 2ft crucifixwith or without a Christ figure.
