Semana Santa

This "paso" was in Marbella. We thought we got away from the processionals and crowds, but they were in Marbella too. All week there are these processionals through out the cities and they carry big golden floats of Jesus and Mary that are hundreds of years old. Sevilla was so crowded that we could barely even walk to get anywhere.

I promise this is not the Ku Klux Klan, but they are almost as scary. Everyone wears these pointed hats in the processionals and a different color each day.

This is the view of the crowd from the top of Hotel Dona Maria where we escaped to. It was crazyyyy!!!! I love Sevilla, but not during Semana Santa!
