Lent in San Miguel is a 40-day party. The streets are festooned with purple and white paper flags etched with the image of Jesus, purple and white crepe paper flowers on palm fronds, silk streamers hanging from balconies, and flowered archways. Several feast days are celebrated, apparently involving very early morning fireworks😳. Pinch out to see the images of Jesus on these flags. Despite the challenging lighting, I hope this image brings you a hint of the celebratory feeling on the spring breeze.
