Bordeaux is not very big but it is not small either. It is like an arrondisement of Paris. It's very easy to visit and is very enjoyable. There is this tram that runs from the train station to the other end of town. Or it is easy to walk but at the end of the day it is better to take the tram. We stayed across the street from the train station.
France is still the most favorite of tourists. It is not difficult to see why. It is beautiful and the French people has such finese in everything they do. There's a cute vignette everywhere you turn, even at this bakery. I get very sad when I come home and have to store away my camera.
With the last rose of summer, I bid you a warm and merry Christmas. I'll be back after Christmas. I will be leaving for Nepal sometime during the second week of January. I just gave myself a Christmas present, an iphone 5. I'm going to activate global reach before I leave so I can keep in touch from Kathmandu. (maybe).
It was interesting to happen upon an ethnic area of Bordeaux. Here people from the former colonies of France living side by side with other ethnic people not from the former French colonies. One should feel completely at home in France. Like the US which is home to people from all the world, France is too. We have our Koreatown, Little Saigon, Chinatowns, and others from Central and South America. The rest of the world is scattered all over and in between. It's fun because it makes for culinary variety and I enjoy that.
