Easter in Baja

In my inbox this morning from Martha Stout, staff writer. She and her husband, math professor Dick Stout, went to Mexico over spring break:
“We’re just back from Baja—what a wonderful trip!!! Blue whales in the Sea of Cortez. Gray whales that came to us in the Laguna San Ignacio on the Pacific side. Lots in between, including Holy Week services at the Loreto Mission of Nuestra Senora, the first Spanish mission on the peninsula. A Good Friday procession complete with Roman centurions on horseback, Jesus carrying his cross, followed by Mexicans dressed as his followers, and many ordinary folk—mostly Mexicans but a scattering of gringos like ourselves, numerous babies in arms and in strollers, and quite a few dogs.
“Christo ha resucitado! En verdad, esta resucitado!”
