Pase del Niño Viajero Otra Vez*
Every Christmas Eve there is a massive parade in Cuenca. The centerpiece is a statue of baby Jesus that was sculpted in 1823, then carried by Monsignor Miguel Cordero Crespo on a pilgrimage in 1961, where it was blessed by Pope John XXIII. This is our third annual parade -- you can read see our images from 2012 here and 2013 here. We came back with over 1300 photos this year, so here is an attempt to give a small view of what it was like.
The day started out raining. I first thought that rain would be the theme of this year's parade, but the rain stopped just a few minutes after the parade started.
