Easter candles

Had forgotten it’s Easter Friday, went out for a quick late evening dinner (as it’s done in B.A.) and heard the sounds of hymns drifting through the evening. Followed the music and found a main thoroughfare closed to traffic, filled with people baring candles. I’m not much for religion myself, but have to admit that in the right context carols and hymns can be quite beautiful.

Now they’re moving down the street, away from where I think they congregated. I’m presuming there’s a church or similar down the street, thousands filling the street so can’t get close enough to see for sure. So now have a seat at an outdoor cafe, glass of Malbec wine at hand, fish ordered for dinner (it is Good Friday!), and can sit back and enjoy the atmosphere.

But dammit, left my camera in my hostel room!
