On Sunday, March 22, take off will be at 8:30 am from San Jose airport, fly over the Central Valley and land in Cartago, the home of La Negrita (as she is popularly referred to), by 12:30 pm.

We can all take part in this activity, from your home it is hoped, by waving a handkerchief (the Episcopal said people can use a mirror, but not sure that is a good idea, a it can affect the pilots), in order to avoid crowds.

The rector of the Basilica of the Angels, José Francisco Arias Salguero, will be with La Negrita in the company of two ushers (custodians of the Virgin of Los Angeles) and will be responsible for conducting prayers during flights.
