So, I guess this isn't really a post about Asulau as much as it is a post about water buffalos.. In Tetum, Water Buffalo is directly translated into cow rice, as they are made to work the rice paddies, and are a source of meat. Asulau is a rice and coffee farming area, meaning that they also farm buffalo. I decided to go for a walk down to the river (with the 30 children who were following the foreigner with a camera) around magic hour. The kids were desperate to get in the shot, so I have many photos of kids running up and smacking the water buffaloes on the arse, and trying to ride them (amongst other things too lewd to mention on this blog). Anyway, here are some pics!
