Spain's Wandering Woman and Semana Santa

I had never heard of Spain's Semana Santa celebrations until Salamanca's wandering woman mentioned a haunting procession that passed by her window while she was reading late one night.

Tonight I found her post about Semana Santa ... it makes interesting reading if you're curious.

Oh, dear, that wasn't much of a post; next year I promise a real post and first hand stories. It truly is incredibly moving, whether you are religious or not.

Thanks as always for the link..

Lol, the post was fine for the uninitiated like myself ... the photographs were powerful and the music was so incredibly haunting.

I would have been left uneasy after that midnight parade you spoke of ... it touched me, even via my laptop.
