  deun ka-lah

 

Thailand

Children with topknots called juk and wearing traditional clothing are playing deun ka-lah, a traditional Thai game in which players walk on coconut shell shoes.

 

The aim of the game is for contenders to compete to see who can move fastest while standing on the coconut-shell shoes, that are kept in place by pulling on a rope that is put between the toes.
