  1. Could you explain processions, what they are for, how they celebrate, do they move around each day, what kind of costumes…Is it like a religious carnival …You lose me a lot when you are telling about these things we don
    t seem to have in the States. the closest thing I could think was Mardi Gras. How long do they last? What is Semena Santa and what the heck is tuk tuk? LOL I really enjoy you!!!!!

    • Heh, I can definitely do a post on those things, Parker. I will be writing more as I take photos while out and about with my sister.
