While waiting for the bus in front of the Cathedral, Claudia and I were privy to a special ritual performed in front of our eyes.  A medium sized group had gathered around a mostly naked man who was chugging beer out of a pierced can.  Then he started spinning with his head on the can, the can on the ground.  The crowd counted to 30.  THEN he ran to a lamp post, turned around and ran back,  Without vomiting.  According to tradition, if a man has not married before he turns 30, he is punished all day long on his birthday eve.  The man was still in his underwear when a nun walked passed.  She didn't look.  She was the only one that didn't look.  Happy 30th Birthday, mystery man.
