Preparing for the weekend

Friday, May 16, 2008

It's gonna be a long weekend. Yup Fiesta time is here :) On those three days, my day will start at 530am because we'd need to leave the house by six, else we won't be able to pass through the town proper. They close the roads to vehicles by seven am. We will be attending the 8am high masses because I had us included in the petitions. And then the procession (and dancing on the roads) starts immediately afterwards. Through previous experiences, the procession lasts until around 11am and the closing prayer (and more dancing!) in the church until around noon. So we will have to endure the heat because of the sun and the crowd that is expected to join the festivities (well, everybody's praying that we will be given a fair weather at least). We definitely need sunblock and hats for this (and I guess a pair of shades too, prolly a pair of vintage sunglasses?)

Tonight's the last day of the novena. All is well :)
