    Pictorial evidence suggests there is a holiday in some Asian nation where people parade around in shirts, loincloths, and footwear. Sometimes they are in the street, and sometimes they are by the edge of a body of water. No bead necklaces, though. 🙂

    Anybody know what this is about?

    They look more Japanese than Balinese.

    Without seeing what you're seeing I can't do much better, I'm afraid.

    Thanks for the research, Kewpie.

    It may be something called the festival of Enoshina.

    Quite interesting (though primitive by Western Standards). Thanks.

    With something like the Enoshima festival, don't you mean "traditional"? What makes you use the word "primitive"?

    A bit arrogant and patronising, don't you think? Unless you're referring to Halloween ...

    probably because this first viewing of an expressive foreign dance
    presented an out of context stimuli which didn't quite fit immediately
    within cultural norms & standards of the western hemispheric world
    i've come to know coast to coast/canada to mexico, in some depth.

    perhaps from your point of view, kewpie. simply gave
    paul my candid impressions of a 'loin cloth butt fest'.

    note: looked at another way, it's probably one of the last
    events on earth i'd place near the top of my 'bucket list'.

    Is Enoshima any more primitive than South Boston on St. Patrick's Day?

    You wear your parochial ethnocentrism on your sleeve then.

    You think some sort of prudish sneering at a bit of semi-nudity is sophisticated - and thus not primitive, on your part - is that it?

    What's "bahstan"?

    Is that like "Bongo Bongo Land" where the "fuzzy wuzzies" live?
