Más Semana Santa

I stumbled onto an even more bizarre procession today in the Maya village of Zunil. This one featured young men dressed up as Marvin the Martian, complete with blond wigs, sunglasses, and multicolored cap feathers. No rayguns. This ceremony hardly looked like Catholicism to me, but when I asked an old lady about the occasion, she said "Semana Santa."

The truth is that I am a little tired of Semana Santa (everything is closed; very stressful for a New Yorker), but I could not resist posting these pictures. The colors are spectacular, no?
