Bullfight picture

Gilgit is an old colonial town, the last foothold of the British in the North West Frontier Province. Nearby, one can walk to the Buddha of Karga Nala, carged into the rock high overhead in a cliff. On the walk back from the village to Gilgit, the way was blocked by these duelling bulls. Horns locked, they pushed back and forth across the dusty road, watched by entertained and unconcerned locals.
