At the entrance to the park, where all the programming off will take place on 28, 29 and 30 April, it is the encampment of the gypsies of the Caravan Burrito, which (ac) will gather the visitors in the passage. Three of these mini mobile homes belong to the family Hemelrijk. André, Judith and their two daughters are the most gypsy of the Dutch. For 13 years, they have surveyed, the rhythm of their impressive horses, the roads of France, Spain and Portugal. A «life of gypsies» which Judith had dreamed, the embodiment of this life, gypsy, nomad, freedom. «Unlike other gadjis, we were always welcome in the camps of gypsies. Some elders were very excited to ride in the trailers. it brought memories of a life that is certainly tough, but beautiful, sometimes late.»
The family leaves today her three horses rest a bit, close to the camp they have set up on the side of Saint-Arailles. A magical place, within a body of farm abandonment, which the maintenance has been entrusted by the owner. A vegetable garden, a new trailer built to their hands, a fire and a huge oak in the middle «we’ve even had chickens !»
