This afternoon I watched - on TV - the first of the two Palio's from Siena... this is a horse race between the various 'Contrade' (quarters) of Siena, and includes all the 'flag throwing' and medioeval costumes which you are probably kind of familiar with.

These are some of the scenes below, and then click on the links on the NEXT post to see another photo and the story in English.

It's so weird to think I've spent many a day sitting right in the middle of the Piazza del Campo, eating an ice cream or watching people. It's even weirder to think of it so crowded with people and horses!

Fabulous, thanks for sharing!
