Looking along the street, we saw people in hooded costumes carrying sticks; drummers; horn players; various ...

... the insense flung through the church. It was like a zoo! The Germans are so rude! There were some kids from a school seating on the pews when the kids went for communion all the old German and tour people and of course a few pilgrims took over their seats!
