Well last night saw a very well attended silent procession through the old town.  There was a different atmosphere to last nights procession from the previous nights.  There was a very definite hush over the crowd as Jesus was carried by about 50 men through the winding streets.  I must say, I am not a religious person but these processions are very moving to witness.  Almost makes me a believer..

Tonight we see the first of the processions that wind thru the streets carrying Jesus on a large ornate wooden float. I am sure float is not the right word, but I can’t think of the right one. Anyway, tonight right thru the weekend, there will be a different procession, tonights will be the first and smallest. By Thursday, most of the town will be out lining the streets and following along behind the band. Here are some shots from tonight.
