Todos Santos Cuchumatan

The Guatemalan town of Todos Santos Cuchumatan celebrates All Saints Day (November 1) each year by holding a horse race that is best described as follows:

“Dressed in special holiday clothing, a mob of men on horseback race back and forth down the main road into town between a throng of onlookers, stopping at each end of the course to take a pull of hard liquor before galloping at breakneck pace to the other end. This exciting diversion goes on for hours as new riders enter the festivities and other riders fall off or just drunkenly give up”.

Sounds like a race Nic White would win, although I’m sure Hunners with his South American experience might fancy his chances.. New B’n’C event this November?
