At the races, the horses are interesting but the people in the audience are worth a look too!
First of all, it seems in Pau, people like to go to the races as you see on the main picture where the 3500 places gallery is crowded.
Interesting characters can then be observed here or there, with all sorts of people in the audience from very young to old, wearing hats, caps, or just hair. . . (picture2).
Binoculars are of course a must at the races (pictures 3and 4). It is not as “chic” as in Longchamp or Auteuil (the most famous Parisian racecourses) but interesting hair make-up can be seen here or there. . . . (picture5)
