Crucifixion of Jesus, Good Friday in Ayacucho Peru

On Good Friday in Ayacucho, Peru, I followed Jesus up a very steep hill,  watched Jesus get crucified by the Romans. He died on the cross and after I took a bus back to town with Jesus along with his disciples.

Jesus, his disciples, the Roman guards along with quite a few locals and tourists walked up to the mirador of Ayacucho. The cast for the re-enactment are all volunteers from university students, army and police personals and others from all walks of life.

I struggled up the steep path with an altitude of around 3000meters (9800 feet) above sea level to witness the re-enactment of the crucifixion. The passion of christ scene was held at the top of the hill overlooking the breathtaking view of the city of Ayacucho.

After the whole event, I came across the whole cast waiting for the public bus back to the University and I followed them back to town.

Quite an surreal and anti-climatic experience!
