lol, well I'm going to give it to you Jube - it IS Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, in the Camargue, on the Rhône delta, near L'Etang de Vaccarès, place of pilgrimage for the gypsies, whose patron, Sainte Sara, has a statue in the crypt of the fortified church. The pilgrimage took place this year on May 24, which was what inspired me to choose this photo.

For those who are interested, here is a link:

I took a punt because the clues didn't add up properly and this was the only place that popped up really. Did you go on the pilgrimage? Enjoy it?

Well done Jube! No, I didn't go. Went once with my parents when I was much younger. Very colourful, very impressive!
