Cristo de la Sed

Cristo de la Sed

On Saturday night we went out for a drink with friends and as I sat, sipping on a fine Rioja, the melancholic sound of trumpets playing suddenly filled the air.  A procession was going by along the main road of Arroyo de la Miel.

Not a day goes by in Spain, it seems, when there is not some sort of fiesta, procession, or celebration.  This one, I learned (with the help of the waiter, a Spanish couple and Google translate) was for ‘Cristo de la Sed’ – ‘Christ of Thirst’.
