Holy Week in Costa Rica

Holy week in Costa Rica was a treat for the senses.  Our first full day in San Jose was Palm Sunday, so our first stop was church:  Crowds waving palm fronds and handing them out, and even a pageant:

I didn't think we got to see Jesus...but, is he the guy in the purple?  (Sorry!  I'm a Jewish girl!)

On Good Friday we rode by (an enactment...I hope!) of the crucifixion.  Didn't get a picture...but read about it in the news...

Every home had a crucifix in front of it.  During Holy Week, draped in purple, after Easter,     
draped in white.
Don't know what this was about...

  1. Jesus is always dressed in white or off-white. On Palm Sunday, he was riding an ass. I'm guessing the baby is just stuck there.
