A steady monsoon rain pours down, as a young woman listens to Mass during the annual Taong Putik, or "mud people," festival in Bibiclat, on Luzon island, Philippines. The festival honors St. John the Baptist, and devotees cover themselves in mud, banana leaves and vines to symbolize the animal skins he wore in the Bible. June 24, 2011.
