We were sitting in one of the small food stalls at the market when a woman with an open fire came down the aisle with the shops, muttering something to herself. At first I thought she was bringing the fire into one of the kitchens where people might be cooking with firewood.
But then my wife told me that the woman drives away evil spirits with the fire, the smoke and the accompanying spells.
The spirit exorcist can also be seen in the accompanying video at the Cogon market in Cagayan de Oro and greeted me very kindly.
