Black is beautiful

Here are some photographic impressions from this year's Arrastre de Caudas in Quito, collected from all over the web:

If you want to see some moving pictures, here is a 5 minute feature from a TV station in Ecuador. The language is Spanish, of course, but the pictures are great. I especially like the scene in the sacristy, where you can see how the canons are vested for the event.

Welcome back. Stunning pictures and video. One wonders about the hood over the biretta, but who messes with such an old tradition?
