Now it is looking a bit "contrived for the Tourists", Tom.
Tom Wilson: I don't think so, Ray - they've been doing this since before tourism was invented smile
Jolie animation avec beaucoup de spectateurs.
Tom Wilson: Merci, Martine

I'm amazed at the size of the audience
Tom Wilson: The Palio and the preceding processing are big events in Siena.
Clearly this was a big deal
Tom Wilson: The Palio is the big event in Siena.

Such a pageant.
Tom Wilson: It is indeed - and obviously a great event for the locals.
i like how your frame is nicely filled with the event going on, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ayush
The outfits are a bit of a jest. smile
cool show!
I've appeared in pantomimes in tights and a short tunic as a young man but I don't think I could do it in front of thousands of people!
that certainly a very popular event Tom... so many people packed in the streets...

we won't see anything like this for quite a while because of covic-19....petersmile
