Decided to skip flying home to the Philippines to cover this year's Holy Week celebrations. Hey, even photographers have to rest....

Crucis

But boy did I miss the buzz of activity - the sweat, the pain, the murmur of prayers, the blood splatters, the carrozas, the via crucis, the senakulo, the pagpapako. Not often do you get to experience that deeply religious vibe hanging so thickly in the air.

Like Waisak day in Thailand, or Ramadan in Indonesia, or Thaipusam in Malaysia, the semana santa in the Philippines is one of Southeast Asia's most intense religious occasions.
