Finally, after a stressful week, I have a few hours before I have to start studying for finals.
Here are my photos from Bordeaux, where I spent the most time. There I did lots of things like exploring alone, spending a day in a French high school (not pictured), and going to a small funeral at a small village in wine country (long story, and not pictured), and ate lunch with some British folk (also not pictured). Here are my favorite photos from my wanderings in Bordeaux. I hope you enjoy them! Click on the photos to view them at a larger size.
I got caught in a downpour, but afterwards this rainbow over Garonne River and Pont de Pierre bridge appeared. Definitely worth standing in the rain to see:
The riverwalk and quays along the Garonne River:
Pont de Pierre bridge at night:
The general chaos that is a French street. Trams, bikes, motorcycles, cars, and pedestrians walking any which way:
Place du Palais:
Delightful pastries in a cafe:
The riverwalk again:
I was amazed at how much French men pee in public. It seems like they go wherever they feel like. When I looked though my photos, I was surprised to find this. I didn’t notice this guy when I took the photo!
Cathedral St. Andres:
Behind St. Bruno church:
Check back in a few days for photos from Nice!
