100 women in Nepal dance naked
100 women in Nepal dance naked in hopes of pleasing gods, getting rain

KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) - More than 100 women danced naked in a remote mountainous village in Nepal hoping the gods would be pleased and give them rain, a news report said Tuesday

The women gathered at a local school, smeared their faces with black powder and danced naked last week at Darbang village, about 280 kilometres west of the capital, Kathmandu. "People in this area believe the (Hindu god) Mahadev will be happy and provide rain once women perform such a nude dance," the Kathmandu Post quoted local teacher as saying.

1. naked women must've been dancing here
...in Portland, OR for the last few months. We've had something like 70+ days of rain since March.
