This Iguana wouldn't let us pass, so we had to wait 15 minutes for the bugger to move
The village of Santa Cruz in Flores island, with Corvo island on the background.
The procession has passed. Children go up and play in the left over sawdust. Some people stoop down and pick up a bit of the sawdust as a remembrance. In a minute the city workers will descend upon the remaining sawdust and sweep it away leaving only a faded memory.
After the Anda with Jesus and a few saints there is the Anda carrying Virgin Mary. There is little left of the alfombra, but they will make sure they walk over what is there.
You can see what is left of the beautiful artwork as the drummers behind the anda now cross over the alfombra. The colors are still there but it no longer resembles the image that was once there a few minutes before.
There is a strangeness about watching the anda of Jesus crossing over the face of Jesus. Did Jesus not sacrifice himself? This would seem a good representation of that.
The first steps of the and onto the alfombra. There is a sadness coming over me as I've invested lots of time to watch this one being created.
