GARDIANS OF CAMARGUE
It is a wild land swept by the mistral,
grid of pastures, ponds
and swamps who faint in the sea.
Here, the look is on the bulls
and these white horses the "camargues" ... in freedom.
In this rough delta, meet with the gardians of Manades,
these men, who exploit, but also protect the swamps!
