Semana Santa is here

Semana Santa or Holy Week is officially here! Jason is off work for the week and we head to Antigua tomorrow to take in the incredible, intricately designed sawdust carpets that are made each night, covering entire streets only to be trampled by processions the following morning. It should be a sight to see. Here in Pana, small "carpets" made of pine needles have been appearing already in preparation for Easter Sunday. I love that people here still see value in creating something beautiful that may only last for a few moments. There is something so moving about that.
