Galle - Town fair

A very interesting "Well of death" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mjxa2Lklugs Well of Death is a famous show in most melas (fairs) It involves a temporary cylindrical structure about 25 feet high and 30 feet in diameter (or sometimes even wider when cars are to be involved) assembled together by association of hardwood planks. The people who wish to see (audience) stand upon the platform build around the circumference of the structure and gaze down into the round hollow where motorcyclists drive. Due to the centrifugal forces developed because of the fact that the bike is in orbit the motorcycle is able hold its motion upon an almost vertical wall as easily and spontaneously as if it were on normal ground.This is an awesome and specular sight for which the people pay to see. .................................................................................... The most interesting thing here was there was a cyclist with a motorbike rider.. cant imaging how fast he had to ride has bicycle to do this stunt. Unfortunately it was too dark to get any clear pics. Saw in a year end fair in Galle, Srilanka
