Tomorrow they begin, the 12-th plays around the elephant's Polo-world championship. After we ours, but as Ferienünterkünfte acting Gemäuer left and about the next Destinations we consulted, came along on the way to the receipt. By the cocktail hour the participants are found in the Hauptlodge of her Travel information one: Maharajas, Kavallerieobristen, tour operator, matadors, supermodels, journalists, ambassadors. A team from London carries specially for this occasion tailored blazers. The Hatti Sathis, a group of former Gurkha officers, carry an unconventional headdress which reminds of elephant's ears. More than a competition teilnehmer is introduced than " the biggest Polospieler of India ". Fame talking and toasts resound by the cavernous Lodge. We still heard fast the last Europe information, before it went off. Now Manclark are with the team BarialMunich which has only one single German as a member, but for it two nice Americans - type Cattle breeder with weather-tanned face and baggy stetson. Women are represented in several teams. Our first competition opponent is the team BavarialMunich the team members from Travel Germany have integrated. Smoke wraps the field. Like big gray battleships while maneuvering in the fog appear the elephants and disappear again. The sun hangs as a silvery disc in the sky. Around the field Nepalese spectators have positioned themselves - some have taken ' for this event lasting for days walks on themselves. We select our elephants, this is a steady ritual before the play beginning. Eight animals stand lined up to the inspection. They are excessively decorated, the Mahuts have painted to them colored graffiti on the skin. We get four elephants, four the other team. After the half time the riding animals are exchanged.
Time for climbing up! Hand shake with the opponent. From the Mahuts the elephants get one more piece of sugarcane given. Whether do they become thereby quicker? It crackles before tension when my team's companions and me mount. We order the ropes, wrap the right wrist firmly in a hold giving elastic bandage. One hands up to us different floors which we check for length and pliability, until we have found the right one. Now the slow, majestic march follows the field, eight gigantic four-legged friends, into the bargain the riding animal of the referee which is bigger than all the others. Encouraging shouts reach us from the side lines. The play announcer reads out our names. Thus we hold move in the arena. I am the number 2, a striker in this morning. Now everything goes much faster than in the training. The elephants wobble with the running as if they wore to wide elastic suits. Anyhow I manage three backhands - everybody stops an opposing attack and becomes from ours, to followers with cheering signs: "Further" I get entangled in several duels. I swing the racquet, prod the Mahut, get from more than half of the swings again misses. We have a triple order chain: I, the Mahut, the elephant. I prod the Mahut, and he kicks the elephant. One must himself far hinauslehnen to discover the ball or to hit. The rope about my shoot soon loosens, and both stirrups gives way, until they are too long for my legs. After about ten minutes I sit on my elephant without hold - therefore, I clasp my Mahut. The play announcer crouches on a side line, an autobattery feeds the loudspeakers. In the middle of events my name blows above the field: " And now Charles Bamard of the Infidels takes the gate in ... what blow “ Bamard is again in the ball possession and unguardedly... Short duel between Bamard and Manclark... " And then brightly enthusiastically: " Well done! Nice hit! Finely played! " After the meeting which we have lost 2:1 there are embraces and handshakes on the part of the Bavarial Munich teams and then an Umtrunk.
