Staff, robe, cell phone

When you walk around Antigua, Guatemala during Semana Santa you see many indigenous people dressed for the holiday.  Men, women and children are costumed for the honorable position of carrying the wooden floats during the daily processions through the streets. You would see some on their cell phone and others would sit on the curb smoking a cigarette. The honor of being in a procession entailed walking throughout the entire city for several hours. It’s understandable that they needed a break.
