Cows at Night, Greetings from Toulouse Place du Capitole via Cow Parade

Shortly after leaving my hotel (Ibis Centre near Place Jeanne d'Arc on a quiet street) for a digestive evening walk in Toulouse, I noticed 'rollers' zooming down Rue Matabiau towards city center. We managed to catch up with the tail end of the group followed by a van with a Roulez Rose logo.

As we reached Boulevard de Strasbourg, here came 50 or so bicycle riders following in the wake of the 'rollers'.


They happened to be all headed for Place du Capitole as others intent on taking in the sights and sounds of the Cow Parade, a 2 day installation.


Greetings from Toulouse on a cool Friday night.

Found Serenity at French Gardens of Palais de La Berbie near Musee Toulouse-Lautrec in Albi

Aug 31
In past 8 days, while my writing has been spotty, I must have taken a couple hundred photos of places in and around Toulouse. Yesterday morning i paid a visit to Albi. We started with tour of Musee Toulouse-Lautrec followed by a walk through the French gardens of Palais de la Berbie where the museum is located. I found serenity thanks to wonderful views of the Tarn river and the city.
