Holy Week in Mexico - This week marks not only an important religious observance but an important vacation period as well. It is preceded by several observances such as Lent and Carnival, as well as an observance of a day dedicated to the Virgin of the Sorrows, as well as a mass marking the abandonment of Jesus by the disciples. Holy Week proper begins on Palm Sunday, with the palms used on this day often woven into intricate designs. In many places processions, masses and other observances can happen all week, but are most common on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday, with just about every community marking the crucifixion of Jesus in some way on Good Friday.
Holy Saturday is marked by the Burning of Judas, especially in the center and south of the country, with Easter Sunday usually marked by a mass as well as the ringing of church bells. Mexico’s Holy Week traditions are mostly based on those from Spain, brought over with the Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire, but observances have developed variations in different parts of the country due to the evangelization process in the colonial period and indigenous influences. -- Courtesy of Wikipedia

I'm All Yours!-->> - This dog was dumped at Punta Lobos weighing almost nothing and covered with mange. Martha Kinkaid took the dog to the vet and has fattened her up and gotten rid of her mange. She is full of energy, is house trained and you wouldn't have a clue she was the same dog I saw at Punta Lobos a few months ago.
She is only about 9 months old. If you adopt her, her puppy shots and spaying are free. As you can see from the picture, she is now a very happy dog. - Pam Cobb, senoracobb [- at -] yahoo.com, 612-102-7983, Todos Santos
