Dressed in special holiday clothing for the All Saints Day celebration in Todos Santo de Cuchumatan, Guatemala, a mob of men on horseback race back and forth down the main road into town between throngs of onlookers, stopping at each end of the course to take a pull of hard liquor before galloping at a breakneck pace to the other end. This exciting diversion goes on for hours as new riders enter the festivities and other riders fall off or just drunkenly give up. Hungry Planet: What the World Eats (p. 158).
