Festival highlights: getting tipsy on millet wine (and discovering it’s not really wine) with the tribal chief at the Rukai Harvest Festival in Wutai, rowing on the Ganges amidst floating flower petals & blazing goddess effigies during Durga Puja in Varanasi, imbibing rice wine (again not wine) surrounded by barrels of burning money, giant stuffed pig heads, Taoist-Buddhist chants & mobile striptease shows during Hungry Ghost Festival near Taipei, and helping to set Satan alight at a pre-Christmas Burning the Devil ritual in Antigua.
