Drumming Competition ~ Chiang Mai
March 6, 2002

These giant drums were rolled out one Sunday afternoon to decide once and for all, who could hit a drum the hardest. The drums were lined up and the barrels aimed at the judges, seated a safe 30 meters away. At the signal two men would go ape-shit on each, creating quite an impressive racket. Uncultured Philistine that I am, I lost interest quite quickly.
