Jesus is Korean!
Starting off a bit later, and behind the pilgrims was this group, made up of visitors from California (of course) and Korea, who re-enacted Jesus' last hours. Instead of the corn-fed Midwestern type that dressed as Jesus when I was here 6 years ago, a Korean pilgrim played the role of Jesus, wearing a wig, splattered with fake blood, wearing a crown of thorns and burdened by a cross. He was escorted by other pilgrims dressed as Roman centurions, including the same skinny old guy I remembered from 6 years ago, yelling, “come on, Jesus”. There were also some Korean interpretive dancers wearing sparkly outfits befitting the guest alien of the week on Star Trek and a woman with a mike I dubbed Kareoke Mary.
