Invited to the Mayordomia festival

This week we were lucky enough to experience a local towns Mayordomia festival. It celebrates the blessing of the virgin. The town females carry the statue from house of the host family to the large church where it is blessed for the coming year than to the smaller church where it will stay for the year blessed. We get to witness it carrying because it happened at 5 am too early for us we only partook the 3rd day of party dinner drinks and music. The Mayordomia itself is a 4 day event of long preparation, worship and partying.

3rd day of the Mayordomia must have been 300 plus people from the town
