Lent Vistas — Procession from Jocotenango near Parroquia de San Pedro in Antigua Guatemala

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; Lent Procession from Jocotenango near Parroquia de San Pedro in Antigua Guatemala

Thanks to the Special Lent Photo Walks I am leading on Sundays during Cuaresma and Semana Santa I am able to bring you the coverage of processions and everything else I come across.

For instance, this time I am sharing two small video clips recorded near Iglesia La Merced that shows you the cadence and the crowds around the anda, float, of Jesús Nazareno El Dulce Rabí Procession from Jocotenango as well as the processional music that provides the sound track for Cuaresma and Semana Santa. Enjoy!

If you would like to see what kind of images are possible or to book an upcoming photo walk, please, visit the AntiguaPhotoWalks.com website.

Here’s a short video clip that shows Jesús Nazareno El Dulce Rabí Procession from Jocotenango near La Merced in Antigua Guatemala on the third Sunday of Lent, March 19, 2017.

Another short clip to listen to the processional music for the float of Jesús Nazareno El Dulce Rabí from Jocotenango recorded near La Merced in Antigua Guatemala on the third Sunday of Lent, March 19, 2017.

    ….is it just my impression or are the crowds getting bigger and bigger every year ??? I’ve done the whole Semana Santa in Antigua several times some years back and I remember I could easily walk around and take photos, get out from one point easily to walk up ahead a couple of blocks and get in front of the procession again. For the last five years I only see the sunday at the beginning of Semana Santa procession when I’m still in Antigua and even that day has gotten more crowded and not really enjoyable because of all those thousands of people. Even all during the day the crowds are getting a bit annoying cause you can’t find a seat in the parque or cafes or restaurants… Seems the number of people grow every year and I’m not sure that is a good thing… ( For the rest of Semana Santa I escape to the Western Highlands… Viernes Santo in Chajul is amazing… I’m always pretty much the only foreign visitor, it’s unique and even though it’s much smaller than Antigua, it seems a bit more authentic and it’s really beautiful with the traditional dress of the Ixil. And there’s no risk of panicking because you can’t even move in the crowds of people trying to get out… ;o) )
