In Colombia, residents slog through waist-deep water to save their belongings after the Jamundi river flooded;  in Myanmar, Buddhist monks prepare to walk the streets collecting alms at Mahagandhayon monastery in Yangon; and pilgrims in Spain march to Santiago de Compostela before the start of winter.

In the news, a 30-story residential building catches fire in Shanghai, killing 42 people; Rep.
