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.
The ever-present cell phone!
🙂 Cell phones are everywhere now. Even villagers in Africa with no electricity and running water have cell phones and they charge them on a solar run battery chargers. It is ever present and there is no going back. It is mostly useful… 🙂
Indeed, they are useful!
