Pose: Camel Variation
Location: Along the Guadalquivir River near the Triana Bridge. Semana Santa is in full swing. Last night we made a point of being at the giant La Macarena procession (see post 106), so today we decided we would walk around the city and let fate lead us. We stopped for drinks in pink church plaza (see post 83) and heard a processional was about 40 minutes away so we waited. It was much smaller and most of the people in the crowd had family members in the processional. Little altar boys were marching through handing out candy to the children in the audience. After that we wandered through the city center where much of the street is closed off for the private boxes. We just got glimpses of how the rich Sevillanos get to watch processionals in luxury and comfort. We ran into a few more processionals before sitting down to a nice Italian dinner. After that we planned to watch the Triana church carrying it’s icon back over the bridge to its home. As we headed that way we decided rather than fight the crowds on the bridge, we would enjoy it from the river front.
