Photos of the day: Salon de l’Agriculture

The Agricultural Salon is the greatest thing to happen to Paris. There are prize winning bulls, dog herding competitions, raw milk tastings, champagne and oyster stands, Moroccan almond cakes, reindeer meat from Siberia, vegetable inspired fashion shows, donkeys in dreads, German beer maids, fondue samples, Russian vodka and caviar bars, and many many more curiosities and pleasures. The show lasts until Sunday. I beseech all those who doubt to go (that means you Club Planche). I’ve already been twice this week and I’ll probably go back again tomorrow.

Those rumps could be in a rap video! Incidentally, the Bleu Blanc breed is notable for its “hypertrophy musculaire”. No kidding…
