Pacu Jawi III

Pacu Jawi – III

How we got to this race is also quite the story made of luck and meeting good people…
We had a disastrous night hike in the Gunung Merapi, we went for the sunrise, and we met rain, storm, torrents of water on the trail. After that we were exhausted and we headed to Danau (lake) Maninjao to rest. We spent three days there instead of the two we had planned. The very last night we met an Indonesian man, Al, and his girlfriend who proposed us to go to a bull race. The only issue is that we already had booked our bus for the next day. It turned out that Al knew the owner of the bus company, called for us, and changed our ticket… yup! I wouldn’t believe it either, but all that is 100% true!
