Holy Week in Tegucigalpa

Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Semana Santa (Holy Week). In Honduras, Holy Week (all 8 days) is an important holiday. Not only does it mark the last days and resurrection of Jesus Christ, but it's a week of holiday and relaxation for most Hondurans.

Typically, most people will attend mass or services in honor of Palm Sunday to start the day. This picture shows a small church decorated for a wedding. I imagine most Catholic churches will have palm leaves instead.

The upper and middle class folk  leave the city for the week, or at least 4 or 5 days. As far as I know, they all go to the beaches on the north coast of Honduras, where the beaches of La Ceiba, Tela, and Roatan beckon the masses. I never go to the beach for Holy Week, because I can't imagine sharing the tiny beach strips with a million beachgoers.

 I stay in the city even though nearly every place will be closed.

We will  enjoy the peace and quiet, taking breaks from work, and sleeping or relaxing.

Along with almost everything which

seems to be building throughout this specific subject

matter, many of your perspectives are actually somewhat stimulating.
Nonetheless, I beg your pardon, because I can not subscribe to your entire plan, all be it
exciting none the

less. It seems to me that your commentary

are actually not completely validated and in

reality you are generally your self not really completely confident of the assertion.
In any

event I did take pleasure in looking at it.

Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic

I'm getting fed up of

Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and

would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
