Fuck me it's the KKK

Last year, after walking to Santiago de Compostela just in time for Semana Santa (Easter) I took this photo in the streets of Santiago.

Obviously, I hadn't read up on this beforehand, but it turns out that Spanish Catholics like to dress up as the Ku Klux Klan every Easter and walk slowly down the streets in silence, scaring the shit out of ethnic minority tourists.

Naturally, I hid in a doorway until it was clear that black people were not being brutalised in the streets. Why doesn't anyone ever tell me about these things...
