Escape a tyrannical husband can have unintended consequences. Reflected this tradition of southern Pentecost Island, Vanuatu ... It is said that long ago, to escape reprimands from her husband, a woman had taken refuge atop a banyan (or coconut, depending on the version). The man was furious, pursued in the tree. The woman threw herself into the void, as the man, without noticing that the vine was tied around the knees and saved his life while he dies ... Since, after the rains in April, when the vines are still wet and elastic, men perpetuate the legend of Pentecost, rushing into the void to prove their manhood and show women that they will not be fooled. The jump N'gol (or gol) is also a fertility ritual. It was after the yam harvest that was erected towers which the top candidates to the status of man will start at 20 meters above the ground. The length of the vines is chosen at the end of the jump the forehead touches the ground (cabinet), ensuring the prosperity of the next harvest. One of the most impressive celebrations and a unique event to be seen in SOuth Pacific. The New Zealander AJ Hackett, who was inspired to invent bungee jumping. A decidedly eventful history.
