There are "stations of the cross" set up along the way, and the devout stop and pray. Some people dress the parts and act out small scenes.
At the end many go back to the church and have a service. Many businesses were closed on Friday and the weekend beach goers was smaller than usual.
School here in Manabi starts again after Easter, so many families were busy getting ready. The weekend was also about life, and many ecuadorean enjoyed family day at home. No Easter baskets filled with jellybeans or chocolate bunnies here, no colored eggs...but stay tuned, the adventure continues.
