It is deeply ironic that on this, the most important day in the Christian 
calendar, my wife, a Catholic, went to play padel and then have some beers 
with her friends, while, an atheist Jew, went downtown to watch the 
procession marking the sentencing of Jesus. Go figure. Of course, the real 
reason is that there are pictures to be taken:!i=1782200995&k=6SLQ9Hn&lb=1&s=O

These people prepare all year for this one day. In other parts of Spain the 
Semana Santa has so far been ruined by rain, particularly in Seville where 
people take it VERY seriously. But here in Alicante we are enjoying glorious 
sunshine today, although it is a bit windy and on the cool side.

Much more to come.
