    Cool pictures, just the whole circumcision festival kind of creeps me out.
    Lets have a big celebration about lopping part of a little boys penis off.

    My apologies to Jewish and all other cultures where it is traditional.

    Well I created a new album with pictures from my 2003 & 2005 journeys to folk-wrestling events in more civilized parts of Europe.

    It shows Ranggeln (Ger. ?to wrestle?, etymologically related to En. ?to wrangle?), a folkstyle in some areas in the Alps: in the Austrian federal districts of Salzburg and Tyrol, in South Tyrol (= North Italy) and in Upper Bavaria (Germany).

    No circumcision, no oil..., the Rangglers are even dressed.

    The matches are very impressive not only because of the nice throws, but also because of the beautiful landscapes in the Alps. All competitions (except for the Austrian nationals ? in any sport hall) are held in open air, high (sometimes very high) in the mountains.

    For more info about Ranggeln see InYo: Ranggeln, the Austrian wrestling: Baxter
    (though this isn't the best article about Ranggeln)
