Semana Santa in Xela

Semana Santa, or Holy Week, is one of the biggest celebrations in Guatemala.  I was in Quetzaltenango, or Xela, during the Friday and Saturday before Easter.  I can’t explain too well what was going on as I don’t have much working knowledge of the Bible, but there’s an article here that goes more in depth.  The second procession on Saturday was right in front of my house, so I just had to stand on my doorstep to watch everything.
