Lois & Nancy wait for the first Easter Sunday procession to leave from the Church of Santo Domingo.  Many buy the clay bells & ring them to encourage the children. This same Sunday morning procession is the shortest one of the week and it is a childrens' procession.  In this shot you can see that they almost lost control of the paso.  It was tipping over, but with good guidance, they recovered. An untiring view - part of the Alahambra. Clark & Lois at the entrance to one of the caves in the Sacramonte.
