Today is the independence day of Indonesia. The football field of Ubud were full of people celebrating this day. One of the main part was a game were men had to climb up a lubricated pole trying to reach the top. They made human pyramids and slowly time after time rub the fat away to make the pole not so slippery.
The men were not so young.
Children playing around before their parade.
Try after try they got higher and higher
In Bali they have a lot of tattoos.
And finally reached the top. There were different prizes like sarongs, televisions or standing fans.
