Congratulations Andre on another nice set of photos from a region of France many of us in North America are unfamiliar with. I had to look up Perpignan, Elne on a map. In the process discovered I learned it was part of the Kingdom of Majorca with a blend of Catalan and French culture. I bet the cuisine was fantastic.

Thank you for the kind words. Yes, Perpignan was part of the kingdom of Mallorca. And you know what? I'm writing this post from...Palma de Mallorca. We're staying here for one week with friends and our motorbikes. I'll post some pictures when I'm back.

On the topic of photojournalism I wonder if it will survive the ongoing consolidation in media. A common fact cited is that forty years ago American media was owned by 50 companies. Today, this number has shrunk to just six! Trend is perhaps similar in the French media?

Unfortunately, yes: same in France. That's really regrettable

Your description of morning street cleaning in Perpignan's gypsy district is what I observed in India.

Yes, I went in India too, some years ago, and observed the same behavior. And yet, I was in Kerala, not the poorest state in India.

Oh, yes, I did spot the panther

Congratulations. I didn't at first.
