Be it the bustling streets of Kuala Lampur or the tranquil beaches of Malaysia. What are the destinations, as a traveler, that would come into your mind when you think of experiencing the world

Pasola Ritual war - The Pasola Festival on the island of Sumba, Indonesia is a ritual war fought by over 100 spear wielding horsemen. I have previously posted photos from this great spectacle which I first saw in 2004.
The Pasola which is held on the Indonesian island of Sumba every year is a religious event which takes the form of a ritual war. One of the many highlights is the traditional dress of the combatants. All participants dress in their finest, mostly in superb traditional ikat weaving. In the midst of it all is one warrior wearing what I assume was the pride and joy of his wardrobe - his Calvin Klein shirt - the only one, I might add!
