Default To jeffao: Border closing ceremony

Bodrder closing ceremony start every day before sunset. There is only one border between India an Pakistan, border in Wagah (India). These states are "in political war" for a long time (50 years). This ceremony represents arogance and contempt of each other. The soldiers are very precious in this show - special grimaces, gestures, etc. Hunderts of spectators from both sides come to see it and sit on the tribunes that you can see on my picture (the tribune for women). The athmosphere is very wild and passionate.
