The Phantom's Vacation
by Jean-Robert Thomann

Every year in Taiwan, the seventh lunar month corresponds to the month of the ghosts: the gates of hell open and the spirits wander for thirty days. During this period, several highly codified rituals are practiced to satisfy the spirits: celebrations, food offerings, dances, karaoke. In Huwei, a small town in the south of the island, these traditions remain particularly alive.
