Fighting Cholitas


In the unlikely chance that I ever get to Bolivia, I've got to go see the cholitas fight. They're female luchadores, but instead of the tights and masks they wear traditional skirts and braids and fight like tigers!

These women were on The Amazing Race. The contestants had to learn their basic wrestling skills and get in the ring and fight them. It was awesome! They are so cool.
Thanks for this picture.

COOL. Do they have fighting abuelita's too? Now, that would be a FIGHT!

Mama: I would watch that show if it didn't come on when things I already watch come on.

SB: I wouldn't fight an abuelita!

DTG,
Clearly you are a smart guy. I wouldn't take on an abuelita either. They might smack me upside the head and make my ears ring!
