I know a lot more about Antigua's famous Holy Week Processions than I knew a week ago.. Good Friday is the day that they have more of them than any other day. There were four of them, and the timing of them overlapped so that there were costant processions from four in the morning on Friday until six in the morning on Saturday.
The tunics worn by the participants are purple up until Friday, then Friday and Saturday they wear black. Sunday there will be only one small procession and participants will be in their regular clothing (although I'd expect they will dress nicely for the occasion). I've got one picture here of a fellow who must have forgotten what day it was because he's just wearing regular clothes on a Friday.
The carpets (alfombras) that are made in the street can have a base of either sawdust or pine needles. The ones with sawdust take a lot of work and effort and use stencils to form the elaborate designs. The ones with pine needles can be thrown together in a couple of hours, apparently, but the money they save by not buying bags and bags of colored sawdust is spent on other stuff like flowers.
Here is also a picture of Nelson Lunding, who works at different places around town playing the piano and is a really nice fellow, despite his menacing appearance.
