Nîmes notes

a picture diary from a Roman town in the south of France

After a (historical) corrida

Leave a comment

One more picture from the feria, before getting back to normal life. The spanish matador José Tomás performed perfectly yesterday at the Roman arena of Nîmes: 11 ears, 1 tail and 1 indulto! The ears and the tail represent trophees, and the indulto means that the bull has been so brave and performed (together with the torero) so well that it will leave the arena alive.

This picture is from outside of the arena, where people waited for Tomás after the corrida. And there were so many! Everyone wanted to see the star, get a little glimpse of him, and show their appreciation to him. He was soon rushed to his van and taken away, but the festive atmosphere continued. Music, singing, dancing… The little girl with Tomás’ picture caught my eye, she was so cute.
