Holy Week: The Float’s Pilot

The Float's Pilot

Interestingly enough, Erick was commenting yesterday how impressive was to see the massive float make a U-turn as he was watching the 5-minute video of the following of a Semana Santa procession. Well, I said interesting enough because I had planned to publish a photo of the huge float’s pilot, the cucurucho you see wearing the purple robes, is pushing either right or left to control the direction of the Holy Week Anda (float).

Oh what a difficult position to be in, to be responsible for the behavior and direction of a monumental float being carry by 60 to 90 people. Would you volunteer to be the float’s pilot?

    I want to thank you for your Holy Week coverage! It’s the next best thing to being there!

  • great pictures. We were there and took over 600 pics, haven’t had a chance to upload them yet. I think that will be a greater task then carrying in the procession:)

    That’s a cool shot of the cucurucho piloting the float.

    Any idea why “ganancia” is spelled like that? That a’s are inverted (if that’s the right term for it).
