Course d’ânes / Donkey Race! {Ardèche}

August 28, 2015

Dans mon article de voyage précédent, je vous ai dit qu’on avait récemment passé un week-end avec des amis dans le village de Laurac-en-Vivarais et visité une variété de villages ardéchois, y compris la nouvelle Grotte Chauvet. Et bien il y a un événement rigolo qui s’est passé pendant nos mini-vacances à Laurac-en-Vivarais juste devant notre maison : une course d’ânes ! Oui, une course d’ânes où on peut parier ! J’ai essayé de faire un peu de recherches pour trouver d’autres infos à propos de cet événement, mais je n’ai rien trouvé. Je suppose que c’est une course traditionnelle qui se passe chaque année. Je ne suis pas sûre. Mais ce dont je suis sûre, c’est que j’ai plein de photos à partager avec vous !

In my previous travel post, I mentioned that we stayed in a town called Laurac-en-Vivarais for a weekend earlier this month to visit various towns of Ardèche with friends, including the new Chauvet-Pont-d’Arc Cave. Well, there was also a funny event happening while we were staying in Laurac-en-Vivarais right in front of our house: a donkey race. Yes, a donkey race where one can place bets! I tried to do some research to find more info, but had no luck. I suppose it is a traditional event that takes place each year. I’m not sure. What I am sure of, however, is that I have plenty of fun photos to share with you!

    La Grenobloise,

    I’m wondering whether you/ I could talk about VSArt, the association I run in Grenoble to bring cultural activities to the disadvantaged. We’re always looking for new volunteers at rentrée time. My phone number is 06 74 50 67 40 if we could have a chat, or if any of your readers are interested in joining VSArt for occasional (or regular) involvement. Many of our volunteers are internationals. Great way to meet locals and to practise French or English…. while helping the elderly, the less fortunate…. Have a look at the website http://www.vsart.org/implantations/grenoble.htm
    You have a great BLOG. Thank you !!
    Meredith
