This week's Postcards are from Apol at LaPomme.etsy.com. Here is what she has to say about them:
I live in Aigues Mortes, a medieval-era village in the south of France. The walls you see in these photos have been around since the 13th century. I guess that, surrounded by all this history, the villagers feel compelled to hang on to their traditions. We have many festivals in this area where among the main preoccupations are dressing up like kings, queens, and knights; and celebrating the people's link with bulls. I myself occasionally like going to watch a "course de toros," a sort of bullfight where no animals are harmed, except maybe occasionally the young men who race with the horned creatures. The last photo would be me, soaking in all that culture and history!
