The locals of Licata have had their hair done, brought a new shirt or a pair of heels, put their make up on and made their way out to the streets of Licata for the processions of Good Friday - three in all. Some kids even dress up as either Jesus or Mary, blood stained robe and all.
This is a big deal, everyone is involved and the people watching in itself makes for a great occasion.
Needless to say we wished we'd known about the mandatory hair styles and the dress code ahead of time.
We're an ordinary family of 5 dreaming, planning and now beginning our adventure around the Mediterranean (and further afield), having an awesome time! Look out for our boat and come and say hi.
