Sunday Drive: Carousel Animals, Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer - 2011

Of course Bonnie and I had to go to Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer during our week-long visit to the Camargue and its environs in 2011. We strolled around the town, ate some paella, and witnessed the local Course Camarguaise (a bullfight, French-style, in which the bulls are the stars and the men run around trying to attract their attention).*  So it wasn't that surprising to find a black bull on the carousel.

[From my personal collection]

 *To get a sense of what happens in the arena, here's a video of one. (Warning--turn your sound way down as it's very loud.)

  1. I haven't seen a coure camargaise since then. They have them in this area also, but haven't managed it. So entertaining.
