  8. The real winner

 

PART ONE

Roosters in the street

 




In Manila you can find roosters everywhere, there are children with roosters, roosters with children, roosters tied up, people tied to their roosters, on the railway tracks, on the seashore, in the rubbish, roosters transported on motorbikes, street roosters, roosters being looked after, cages of roosters, caged roosters...




 

PART TWO

Training

 


It is very normal to see people on the streets fighting their roosters to train them, so that they do not lack that bit of aggressiveness that they should have at the time of the fight.




 

PART THREE

Coliseum

 


Voices, lots of shouting in the coliseum, people with sad faces (they have just lost a cock) and others with happy faces as their cock has qualified for the next fight. A lot of people, a lot of blood, a lot of feathers and a lot of tension in the atmosphere.







 

PART FOUR

The stakes
