Corpus Christi in Mazo

Flower arch in Mazo, for Corpus Christi

If you're on La Palma, be sure to get to Mazo tomorrow, or at least on Friday. It's the Catholic festival of Corpus Christi (the body of Christ) and they celebrate by making these spectacular archways and carpets, all decorated with petals, leaves and seeds. They stay up until Sunday, but between the weather and the crowds, they do tend to suffer as the days go by.
