On a visit to Nîmes


Nimeño II

At Arenes de Nîmes, the ancient bullring in the city of Nîmes in the south of France, you'll find this statue of the famous German born French bullfighter Christian Montcouquiol, "Nimeño II", who was severly injured by a #Miura bull at the bullring in Arles in 1989.  Unable to return to the bullring, he committed suicide in 1991 at the age of 37, and is buried nearby at Saint-audile de Nimes.
