Jesús Nazareno De La Merced...on his Good Friday route through La Antigua's pleasant, middle-order neighbourhoods in the south-eastern part of the grid.

Spot the bloke who wears a silly outfit every day.

On seeing this video my mother exclaimed "What are all those Arabs doing in Guatemala?" !!

The guys in the cream-coloured gear belong to "the brotherhood".

The escort of legionaries have their turn carrying the anda too. Generally the Romans march about a block ahead of the Nazarene, but at various stages during the 10 hour procession they are permitted to re-fuel, and at such times you see them trotting at a very brisk pace towards one of the feeding stations, their leader barking out the Spanish equivalent of "hold the loin".
