Indonesia Indepence Day – street photography

On August 17th, 2011, we celebrated our 66 national indepence day. The ‘panjat pinang’ festival was held on Festival Beach in Ancol, North of Jakarta. This year, they stood up 100 poles for the participants to compete in climbing up. Last year, Ancol had 300 poles up for the competition. There were 5 poles for women participants, unfortunately, they all failed to climb up to the top.

Ps: the poles were entirely lubricated with grease.
