Semana Santa (Holy Week) is an interesting and unusual experience for foreigners. Solemnity is the prevailing attitude with religious rituals predominating in my culture. I'm sure that this is important to Mexicans also, but the atmosphere here is charged with gaity and fiestas! The beach is just beginning to fill up and traffic on the Malecon in front of our condo is already bumper to bumper, with every indication that there is more to come! I understand daytime on the beach, but cars are bumper to bumper on the road at night. I can't figure out where they're going and why!
