|Someone told me we're preparing for the August 15th feast day of the virgin for whom the church here is named: Maria Asuncion, i.e., the assumption of Mary. On August 6th the pre-dawn bombardments will start, disconcerting to all who've not previously experienced them, as well as the morning and evening (also accompanied by random explosions)processions through town. These will last for 9 days, concluding on the night of the 15th.|
