Photographer's Note

Yesterday John showed us beautiful carriage with yellow wheels and fine white horses. Here the Spanish version of the similar event: the carriage in the street of Jerez da la Frontera.

The Jerez Horse Fair, known as the Feria del Caballo, is traditionally held during the first or second week in May. It is an exciting and lively event that brings the entire city to the González Hontoria fairground, which covers an area of 52,000 square meters, giving ample space for the finest horses of Jerez, as synonymous with the city as sherry and flamenco, to show off to the crowds.

The fairground, known as the recinto, was opened in 1903, and in the same year it was agreed that individuals and societies could build their own casetas. There are almost 200 casetas that make up the fairground, beautifully decorated with colourful paper lanterns, known as farolillos.

I like the horse and the beautiful dresses of the Spanish women but the best attraction was the meeting with Angel and his wife. What a pity that Angel left the site :(.

Two more yellow wheels in Workshops.
