Semana Santa La Paz


Pictures of my adventures during Semana Santa.  The orphanage pics are self-explanatory.  I kind of mixed the procession pics in with the orphanage pictures.  I have many more pictures and will try and post more in a different site when I have the time after pre-service training to work on my weblog skills.  The Easter procession pics are made of colored sawdust and spread across the pavement over a length of several city blocks, kind of like Hopi sand paintings or Tibetan mandalas, then the procession of several hundred people walks over them while stopping at the 14 stations of the cross.  The orphanage work was done on Thursday and Saturday and the procession was on Friday.
