If you are okay with slight animal brutality then you must see at least one cock fight during your stay in the philippines. The energy in the arena is indescribable. With hardly any women in the building, men lunge at one another with unfamiliar hand signals while pesos fly across the room from all directions. Each fight can last between 9 seconds and 20 minuets. The room is hot but the level of excitement is sweltering. Be warned, this is not a sight for weak stomachs.
