Photographer's Note

After a half day in Malaga I went very early in the morning by train first to Dos Hermanas , then as walking sandwich I saw Cadiz and finally I came to Jerez de la Frontera. I left my backpack in the hostel and wanted to see the Feria del Caballo. I had a bit of adventures. First, there was no Internet connection in the hostel and I had to check my mails, besides I took the wrong bus that went around the whole town, veeeery long way. But everything ended well, finally I found the area with the Feria and also found Wifi.

The Jerez Horse Fair (Feria de Caballo) is an exciting and lively event that brings the entire city to the Gonzalo Hontoria Fairgrounds, which cover 52,000 square metres, giving ample space for the finest horses of Jerez as synonymous with the city as sherry and flamenco, to show off their moves to the crowds who flock to the two hundred or so casetas which, unlike Seville's, are mainly open to the public, and other attractions. The history of the Jerez Horse Fair goes back over 500 years.

For me, the main attraction were the ladies in colourful long Spanish dresses.
I found this dress or rather lack of it, rather strange. I liked this red fan and shoes. I made quickly only one photo.
