Our tour guide, Melanie, I love this girl!
This is the moment we have all been waiting for, the procession. The "body of Christ" is in this casket and there was a whole parade of disciples behind it. I choose to remember Christ in a different way but I was touched by the dedication this takes.
This is an El Salvador birthday tradition that we have now adopted as a new Markland family Easter tradition. The boys had a blast smashing the eggs. A bit messy but totally worth it.
Joseph's school celebrated a traditional North American Easter egg hunt. Ummm... when did he become such a stud??
Our beloved Paz made us some traditional Semana Santa food. These are Torejas, kinda like french toast but made with a sweet bread/cake and soaked in a sugarcane cinamon mixture. I loved it!! But it was too sweet for Ben and too different for the boys, so I got the whole bowl to myself. finger lickin' good!
We also had ayote en Miel, which is like sweet potatoes in a sweet spicy glaze. Remo lacha (baked beets and veggies) We had fish, dried super smelly fish. woah!! way too strong!! I could taste it for days and I only had one bite.
and last but not least Tres Leches!
