Photo of the Day (07/22/06)

Having spent the last few months of my life walking across the country it is safe to say my feet endured some amount of wear and tear along the way. Not too much ache and pain though. However, looking at this picture captured by Irish Guy from his Round the World Trips at the Sri Mariamman Temple in Singapore makes my feet feel burned and sore. According to Irish Guy this fire-walking ceremony is a major event at this Hindu Festival where devotees honor the goddess Draupadi. After walking across the fiery coals without wincing or displaying any type of pain, they wade through goat’s milk and then stain their feet with yellow tumeric. I’m just glad that wasn’t a requirement for my tour across the U.S. Read more at Irish Guy’s photostream in our Gadling Flickr pool.
