Pulling the rope

One of the traditional games that people play during our independence celebrations is "Tirar la cuerda" (to pull the rope). It's played in teams and the team that pulls the other across the middle line first wins. I even saw a group of women competing against a horse and you know what? The women won!!! (just in case, not a sexist comment).

I can almost hear the little child on the ground laughing and giggling. Tug of War is such a simple but great fun, isn't it?!

With traditional game I mean that this game is played in Chile since its colonial times. And it's very funny. I laughed quite a bit that day...

The horse must not have cared (not a sexist comment; a horse is pretty strong).
