Well I made it to San Juan chapel……………. a little late but still early for the 5 am mananitas ,which didnt happen til 6 am ,so I didnt feel too bad. It was such a cold night last night that I really wanted to sleep longer. But I made a promise and a promise is a promise in my eyes.
The firecrackers were sounding to let people know its time for the carrying of Guadalupe to San Juan
I arrived as four ladies were singing the mananitas in front of closed chapel doors. When they had finished the doors were opened and they lit candles in wait for the statue of Guadalupe to arrive from the Iglasia of St Elena.
Guadalupe was followed by the musicians as they took her into the church where she took the seat of honour right in the middle .
The traditional music of the Mananitas were played as she entered the church.
