Easter is not just a time to thank God and Jesus for his sacrifice in the cross, for locals is as well a time of traditions and family, is a time of thanking, and of course a time for eating!, the tradition dictates that only fish can be part of our diet in this days… but who say that food has to be boring? Ceviche, rice with seafood, parihuela, chicharron of squid , causa of crab umhhh…. the list is endless.
On last Easter’ s sunday of glory or resurrection I had the pleasure of being at the downtown with a couple of guests and fellow travelers, exploring the central market in such festive moment and visiting churches (the tradicion sais that 7 churches should be visited on holy thursday, so we did it on that sunday) it was for moments magical, for moments emotional. On our way we met lots of people that, as in the colonial era, were following a procesion of the image of virgin Mary with candles and prayers, their devotion was deeply touching.
