Just a few pics to get started before going to bed. The day was long and I went through four batteries, so very many pics to get through, a few good ones in there, although not so good of the actual wrestling due to the umpires keeping standing in my way, anyway, we will see. All I can say now was that it was a memorable and amazing experience. Such a contrast between the aggression of the wrestling and the tenderness which the men showed each other both before and after the fights.
