The grave of Nimeño II

1 Comment

No, I didn’t go early this morning to take a photo of the chrysanthemum’s… This is a (n exactly) year old photo, as last year I went for a stroll at the graveyard of Saint-Baudile in Nîmes on All Saints Day, or La Toussaint. By chance I found the grave of Nimeño II, or Christian Montcouquiol, the greatest torero of France. He was and wasn’t taken away by a bull: seriously injured and partly paralysed in a corrida in Arles in 1989, he took his own life a couple of year later. He was 37 years old.
