Antigua Lent Part 4

Almost as amazing as the rugs and the procession was the cleanup. Following immediately behind the procession was the cleanup crew. Within minutes, all of the hard word of the rugs was gone. Before the parade, Rob spoke to some of the guys making the rugs and they said that they spent 6 days preparing and then anywhere from 6 - 10 hours building the rugs. The parade lasted about 20 minutes and the road was back open to traffic as soon as the cleanup crew was done.
