Thank you to Mel and to John for putting me straight yesterday. As John said, I should have known it was a holiday because our teacher, Eduardo had told us.
In fact yesterday was ‘lunes de San Vincente’. The fireworks we heard accompanied the procession that took place in the town. The tradition is to visit the homes of those who have not been able to attend church during Pascua and offer them confession in their homes.
I’ll try to remember to put that on my calendar for next year.
