The 30 septembre 2023 - The annual Courses de Serveuses et Garçons de Café, the national final in Limoges.
A new feature this year, races for children before the main event for adults : 4km around the city carrying a tray of drinks with penalties for spillage. Frédéric Lanoy from La Rochelle won the men's race and Julia Brissaud, from Limoges, took the women's title for the 7th time !
This year the theme is Avaiation in the service of humanity.
To quote the organisers : "In the best tradition of airfield airshows of the 50's, Légend’Air unites, at the St Junien aerodrome, enthousiasts of all types classic aircraft and a public looking for something other than screaming metal."
Barrobjectif is an internationally respected exhibition of photo journalism held in the village of Barro in Charente, France. It's trademark is that it is held "outdoors" : around 600 large format photos by some 75 well known photographers simply displayed on wood panels and walls around the village. In 2023, the weather was not kind to an outdoor show, but wednesday 20th september promised sunny and dry, so I made the trip with my friend Volker.
