Spirits Thrive at Nat Pwe

TAUNGBYONE, Myanmar — This year’s Nat Pwe in Taungbyone attracted perhaps 100,000 people from across Myanmar’s diverse religious, ethnic and cultural groups. Some came for the food, others for the party but most came to pay their respects to the famed spirits in the hope of attaining good luck.
