Shoot at Dimeka saturday market (village not listed not on Globo)
Hammar People have an initiation rite for young boys: the jumping of the Bulls (which take place usually in february); when achieving this, the boy will be able to marry; to celebrate this biig event, all the boy's friends are beating the boy's sisters to express they are the sisters of a valuable guy... As I requested this lady if she agrees on been beaten so severely, she told me, it was fine for her as well.... Strange custom...

Well said, Isabelle! It doesn't look like the boy's friends withheld their blows...she was very badly beaten.

One of the strangest customs I have heard and probably very painful for the girls
