Les Hérolles Market

A few photos from the Foire des Hérolles poultry market this morning. A somewhat surreal and overwhelming experience waking up at 5:00am and ending up surrounded by literally thousands of squawking chickens, ducks, geese, guinea hens, quails, turkeys, and every other imaginable fowl… (all squawking in French.)

Foire Agricole Dun-le-Palastel

It’s just one fête after the next in Creuse, and each one even more exciting that the last! Check out the Foire Agricole in Dun-le-Palastel… This was definitely a day of good wholesome entertainment. (And lots of cows…)

Saint Sulpice en Fete

Yes, it’s that time of year again. August is time for les vacances, and it’s also the time of year when we Sulpiciens dust off our flea market table, oil up the rifle, tune up the tractor, grab a case of beer, and head down to la fête.
