A "promesante" or promiser, with his body coated in a mix of grease and motor oil, takes part in the Santo Domingo festivities in Managua, Nicaragua, Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2012. Some of the faithful annually coat their bodies in a black lubricant as a promise for a prayer or miracle they believe was performed or answered by Managua�s patron saint, Santo Domingo de Guzman. The first 10 days of August are reserved for the carnival-like celebration of Santo Domingo de Guzman, with processions, bullfights, parties and church services. (AP Photo/Esteban Felix)
