August 2nd Pilgrimage to Cartago

Due to the H1N1 virus, the annual pilgrimage – romería – to Cartago was cancelled this year.  I was told that a statue of the Virgin of Los Angeles would be carried through towns, but I don’t know if that is a rumor or the truth.  Over a million people make the annual trek to Cartago, many of them on their knees.  Without a doubt, there will be fewer sore feet tomorrow morning than there were last year!
