When I left home Monday morning, I wasn't exactly sure of the procession's course. All I knew was that it left from the church, Nuestra Señora del Rosario, on the Plaza de la Constitución. So I headed in that direction, knowing that streets would be blocked off to cars wherever the procession would go. I arrived at the perfect time, just as the procession began to turn the corner from the plaza. Having arrived at the last minute, I was lucky to find a spot. And it turned out to be a great spot. As the parade passed, the participants would step into a splash of bright sunlight. It made it look like many of my subjects were spot-lit (as you might have noticed in the first post).

And, of course there was music and dancing...
P.S.: I'm no better today, but no worse, than yesterday... Still some antibiotics to go... I don't care. This evening, we're heading to the fair!
