    Buffalo fights

    Buffalo fights

    This is popular between locals, especially in the Koto Baru area, around 10 kms from Bukittinggi. Two water buffalos fight one against each other until one of them runs away. There is no blood and no animal is hurt. The owners of the animals treat them with respect and big care.
    Local people bet a lot of money on each fight...

    Carrying goods on the head

    Many local women use to carry things on their head. Sometimes even large and heavy loads of goods.
    Nevertheless they walk gracefully and nothing falls down. Amazing.
