Nimes Feria Abrivado

You may have noticed lots of changes on the blog over the last 24 hours... am now just testing out Google video... this is part of the Nimes Feria I wasn't able to upload to YouTube.com

So the first two videos are the 'Abrivado' - note the fences each side of the road (hastily put up each time) have bars which are just wide enough to get through (OK, even I can get through them.) So every young buck around stands in the middle of the road, either chasing the poor bulls, hanging onto their tails or jumping on the poor animals. The moment there's any danger of the bull coming anywhere near them, the brave soldiers run through the fences.

Anyone in their way is just barged out of the way.





The last video is one of the shows that was on on the Boulevard Jean Jaures by the Jardin des Fontaines. Watch for the young Camarguaise horses - they aren't white.

Hi Wendy
Video works fine from this side, and site looks good. A live link to the property details of the house in the right column could prove helpful.
You might also want to look at promoting your RSS feed, and via Feedburner their newsletter service.
Any questions just shout.
