Burn baby, burn

When Robin and I lived in Mexico, Semana Santa (Easter week) was one of our favorite times of the year. So much less traffic! Easy to get into fantastic restaurants! Burning of giant paper mache Judas figures.

This is a long-time tradition, but Mexico being Mexico, the images can get really creative. For example, when we were there, there were a lot of Carlos Salinas Judases getting incinerated.

Here’s a great and topical pic from this year’s Semana Santa celebrations showing EPN and Mrs. EPN in their multi-million dollar, government contractor provided “Casa Blanca” (photo from @TalamantesCNN) about to get all burnt up.

You can also see a more traditional “devil Judas” in the background waiting his turn.
