We allowed ourselves an extra day just to drift around in Bordeaux. Musée des Beaux Arts sported a multitude of paintings and sculptures from the recent 500 years.
Here is a pair of Bordelaises who also resemble their relatives on the streets today.
This is our view along the river front adjacent to our hotel:
[A. Smith, 1892. The embankments of Bordeaux]
And this will be awaiting us tomorrow
[A. Lhote, 1912. Bordeaux landscape]
when we start biking south heading for Toulouse –
– and so is the barge that passed Bordeaux this evening with two pieces of a forthcoming Airbus A380 onboard (to be assembled in Toulouse with many other pieces to form a complete super-jet).
