Arriving in Sta Ana, we snoozed in my friend's place. We skipped the Last Supper Mass - I don't feel going traditional this year. Maybe because the heat was just so unbearable and I can't understand the dialect of this place anyway. It would have been like watching a foreign film without the subtitle. At 7 PM, we did the regular "visita iglesia" where we had to visit seven churches after the last supper mass.
We started in Sta Ana, Pampanga and we finished the visit at Angeles City. We skipped the churches that we visited last year, so no Betis, no Bacolor for us this year. By 12 Midnight, we completed the visit with a visit in Angeles Carmelite Chapel. Pass 12, we drop by McDonalds (or was it Jollibee) for a quick fix.
Upon reaching home, my sister and another friend decided to down Good Friday with whiskey and beer. I was not in the mood for it that night, so I slept ahead of them.
Come friday morning, we help out setting up the "carosa" for the Image our friend owned in preparation for the Good Friday procession. They have the image of San Salome, it's a beautiful image.
After the setup, we said goodbye to our host family to go to Bataan, a hometown of another friend....
