Swearing like troopers
The thirteen councillors were all there. First of all they swore an oath to be nice councillors. Some chose to place their hand on a thick gold and green book as they said their piece while others chose a thinner black book. I asked two people in the crowd what the books were but they didn't know. I presume one was a bible and the other a non religious legal text but I'm probably wrong.
Bit more swearing, the handing over of the symbolic staff of office and then a speech from Lázaro.
That was enough fun for me for one day and I came home. Fair sized crowd though.
