March 25, 2016 - Wainyapu (Indonesia). John - a veteran of many Pasola - bradles his horse. He started participating in the Pasola when he was just 15 and he's now riding the "Halato", one of the two horses that are used to open the festival. Behind John, the tombs where the bodies of the ancestors of the villagers are buried. © Thomas Cristofoletti / Ruom
