It’s Rocío again. That’s how Andalusian Catholics celebrate Whit Sunday.
As far as virgins go, Rocío’s a big gun. I could describe the whole history and religious significance but nobody here really cares about that hooey. It’s a big boozy, religious, whatever you would call this: (Sorry for the length. The first 2 minutes will give you the idea.)
There are a million-odd folks there, all of them trying to squeeze into that little chapel. My neighbours are among them so I’ll get a first hand account tomorrow in the elevator.
Chances are they’ll come home disappointed. The procession was suspended at 8:15 am due to a virgin malfunction.
Rocío still had 75 brotherhoods to visit when they patched’er up with a sweaty hanky. The officials decided to retire the old girl for the year. Drive her into the
shop church for a tune-up.
I feel beat up just watching the video.
