Pacu Jawi

I had the chance to attend an Indonesian cow racing mud spectacle this weekend, and had quite the time. Pacu Jawi is a festival marked by, well, basically cow-surfing through flooded rice paddies. The riders typically grip the tails of two cows that are yoked together with wooden slats, and then hang on for dear life as they are stampeded through a flooded rice paddy. Outstanding stuff!!
