the race

press play*

After hours of cycling in the calm countryside we approached a bridge upon we suddenly realized that we landed in the center of a total new scenery, and also the reason why it was rather silent before.

People of nearby farming rice villages gathering for a rowing boat contest. Various groups were competing. The crowd cheered with everything they had by their hand, lead by a master of ceremony. Police man were guarding the bridge to keep it free. There was some energy in the air. Ecstatic.

Hiljainen on kylätie. Ei ketään missään. Kunnes. Tulemme sillalle joka vie yli joen, ja siellähän kaikki on! Soutukilpailut! Sekajoukkueet näyttävät edustavan lähitienoon pikku kyliä, ja kaikki kynnelle kykenevät ovat kerääntyneet joen varrelle heitä kannustamaan huutaen, hurraten ja meteliä pitäen. Megafonit pauhaa ja ilmassa on urheilujuhlan tuntua. Grillistä saa ostaa keitettyä maissia ja lihatäytteisiä pullia. Monella tuntuu olevan taskumatti povarissa.
