Happy Easter to you from a semi rainy Andalucia....

....My plan tonight was to head to Granada around 9, go straight up to the Sacromonte barrio and wait until nearly midnight to see the Procesión del Cristo de los Gitanos (the Gipsy Procession) but alas, I've got a very nasty cold and feel too weak to go....

.....Le plan pour ce soir était d'aller à Grenade vers 21h, de monter vers le barrio Sacromonte et d'assister à la procession des Gitans qui commence aux alentours de minuit mais hélas, j'ai un méchant rhume et je ne me sens pas d'attaque pour sortir...

....we are having a semi rainy, semi chilly, semi windy weather here for Semana Santa and I'm so divided between my desire to go and my wish to stay warm at home....
You see the Gipsy Procession usually starts late....really late but Monchéri described it to me as being something so special....it's a procession filled of course with a lot of solemnity but also lots of singing and dancing.....

.....nous avons un temps mi pluvieux, mi frisquet, mi venteux ici pour la Semana Santa
et je suis tiraillée entre mon désir d'y aller et mon envie de rester bien au chaud à la maison....La Procession des Gitans commence généralement tard....très tard mais d'après les descriptions de Monchéri, c'est vraiment quelque chose d'unique...c'est une
procession, bien sûr très solennelle mais aussi très vivante avec beaucoup de chants
et de danse.....


....so I will see how I feel later on this evening....I wish I could go there just by the touch
of a magical wand ! How about you ? Will you be painting or hiding eggs this week end ?
Happy Easter to you !

....bon je verrai comment je me sens ce soir....Si seulement je pouvais y être d'un coup de baguette magique ! Et vous ? Allez-vous peindre ou cacher des oeufs ce week end ?
Joyeuses Pâques à vous !

Dear Lala, I'm sorry that you are not well. Stay in bed and get better. The festivities will be there next year. Have a lovely Easter.

I hope you feel better and are able to go. My family and I are staying in and baking and hiding eggs. :)

Get well soon!
Your Easter display is almost ephemeral.
Those processions are poignant and special. I hope that you make it!

Those were pretty much my plans too, but then I remembered that I don't live in a Castle in Spain!

Happy Easter Greetings from California and hope you're feeling better soon!
