Traditional Warrior

In Timor, the ceremonial dance erupted with the two men reenacting a warrior's combat. The wooden swords clashed with a sharp tone that held the attention of the small group. An obvious performance for our benefit and I couldn't help but be intrigued by their dedication. At one point the men collided their weapons with such force that one sword cracked in half.
