As festive as it might look, there’s not an AWFUL lot happening in downtown Pierrefeu as winter approaches. When I was there the other week, just before Halloween, the big news was that the Circus Anthony was coming to town. And later, the local paper went big on a photo of a camel standing near a pile of builder’s sand near the Big Top. Bit of a scoop, that.
Not as exciting, however, as the other circus which opened in the area, The Cirque Amar, which promised unforgettable spectacle and the biggest cabaret in the world. What piqued my interest though was the prospect of ‘The Globe of the Death’ – which I think was some kind of motorbike stunt-thing. Badly translated.
