The disappearing pictures and videos….

So…..the weirdest thing happened.   I took pictures and videos during the procession last evening.  Even pictures from above when they passed under my window…..this afternoon, when I looked for them to decide which to post, there are no videos of the event on my phone and only a couple of pictures.  Weirdness!! I have never had this happen before.  Weirder still, when I was telling my Spanish teachers they said it had happened to one of them 2 weeks ago.  Also, when I left home I had over 2,000 pictures on my phone (excessive, I know) and now there are just over 600.

Anyway, the procession was rather impressive with a spectacular ‘float’ carried on the shoulders of dozens of men.  I  do have a picture of that, but I had video and pictures that were far more impressive.   The procession was for Santa Maria del Monte Calvario and there are you tube videos of it.  I guess I will just have to be content with looking at them :((

The picture of the square was taken before it was filled with people.   You could hardly move a short time later. 

The bells in the tower tolled very loudly before and during parts of type he procession.  I had video of that as well.

I consider myself extremely lucky to have picked a place to stay that was right by the procession.   My Airbnb hostess did not feel so lucky.  It took her an hour to find a parking spot when she got home from work.
