Semana Santa/Easter-Santa Domingo Church in Oaxaca City 2010

Blog post by Tina Winterlik © 2011

Last Year we celebrated Easter/Semana Santa/Holy Week in Oaxaca City Mexico

During the week before Easter Sunday we enjoyed long walks thru the market, zocalo and up to Santa Domingo - a gorgeous 500 year old church that is covered in gold.

We bought up beautiful religious ornaments that the local indigenous people create. 

Then I made an altar in my room. 

I was supposed to take it all and get it blessed but felt shy and tired from the heat, and well we just didn't. 

On Easter Sunday, Angel and I went to Santa Domingo and sat thru part of the mass, she was fidgeting so we left, but it was a wonderful experience. One I will never forget.
