Hacía 40 bajo cero fuera y por entonces no había teléfonos móviles”. Y qué hiciste? “Pues esperar a que pasase alguien, qué vas a hacer?”. Pavel, mi primer conductor en Siberia, lo contaba con naturalidad. Le brillaban los dientes de oro al sonreír pero, si lo pensáis bien, pudo perfectamente haber muerto de frio en la carretera aquella noche de no haber pasado nadie. Mi transiberiano es, por motivos logísticos, una versión recortada, no llega a Vladivostok, y además inversa, es decir, de Este a Oeste, por eso la primera parada es Ulán-Udé, la ciudad más oriental de mi ruta.

Historical Non-Friction: Turkey’s Oldest Oil-Wrestling Tournament

Billed as the world's second-oldest athletic tournament—after the Olympic Games—it's also the largest showcase for the Turkish national sport of oil wrestling. This time-honored event has one noticeably different ingredient from wrestling bouts elsewhere: olive oil, and lots of it. The one thousand or so contestants at Kirkpinar, as the competition is called, use an estimated thousand kilograms (about one ton) of the all-natural unguent throughout the one-day tourney. In addition to its aesthetic benefits, being slathered in oil prevents an opponent from easily gaining leverage. Wrestlers tend to compensate by reaching down the opponent's trousers—a conventional and totally legal move. Kirpinar draws contestants of all sizes and ages and takes place in an open stadium that fits more than 25,000 spectators.

And locals. And local food. SO, when I found out about the ham festival that was going down in Barrancos, Portugal, “to go or not to go” was not the question. So, where in the world is Barrancos? Barrancos is a teeeeeny tiny 2,000 person village in the South of Portugal, right next to the Spanish border. Except everyone spoke Portuguese. Now, I’ve never been a big hamconnoisseur.
