On the Go in Manado 11: Tomohon Two

I liked the mountain town of Tomohon so much that I extended my stay, spending three days up in the hills. 

On the ride down from the Mahawu Volcano, I ran into a bit of an obstacle. This was a Thursday following the Sunday of Easter. Perfect time for an Easter parade, right?


The drum majors directed the band while marching backwards
The parade was down the Jalan Raya, Main Street. No way to get through. No way around it. I just got to hunker down and watch the middle schoolers march down the road in costume. 


Whip it. Whip it good.
Interestingly, I got to witness the Stanford Experiment in full effect. In an Easter parade, you got one kid who's Jesus. You got three kids as centurians whose job was to whip Jesus. Some of these kids got really into their role. They're kids. Boys, at that. Of course they got into it.
