Algunos chicos aún juegan con trompos, en la ciudad prefieren otro tipo de juguetes pero siempre es bueno ver una competencia en las calles.

It is an attractive looking top! How on earth does it spin in the dust and on the uneven ground?

I remember this to so well, it is every boys pride to learn to spin it, in the Philippines we call it Turumpo, obviousl Spanish origin but has changed through the years in pronunciation.
