The Sinulog Procession and the dirty waters :)

Last January 15, 2011 we attended the annual Sinulog procession (with my daughter). It was a procession attended by hundreds, even thousands of people right before the Sinulog festival. The statues of St. Joseph, St. Mary of Guadalupe and the centuries old Sto. Niño(child Jesus) were there. It was our first time being there and it was nice amidst the crowd and rain and flood. Many devotees were there to walk the 4.5km route...

I really admire the devotees who still went and walked amidst the raining and flood, and they've been doing this for many years too. Their faith is really strong and I'm glad we were there to witness it and be a part of it. :DThe way back home was really tedious though, the flood was all over the place of colon and it was up to the knee. There was no other way to go but down the dirty waters... But after almost an hour of walking in that, we made it to a jeepney and rode home... :D  Pit Senyor to everyone..

It wasn't raining yet when I took this.. :)
