Week 41 2015


The first Sunday of every month is car free in the centre of Bordeaux, so we headed over there to have a wander round.  For easiest access, take the tram.

We ended up in the St Pierre area where they have a huge flea market spread all around the square.  It seems anything goes… there was even a giraffe for sale!

But what’s with the big red ball?  All suggestions welcome.  They were inflating it when we arrived and it stayed there all morning.  Find out here.

Whatever you do this week in the  Gironde and Dordogne regions, have a great time.
Best wishes,

Fred and Mick, two old friends, are on vacation in an elegant hotel at the foot of the Alps. Fred, a composer and conductor, is now retired. Mick, a film director, is still working. They look with curiosity and tenderness on their children's confused lives, Mick's enthusiastic young writers, and the other hotel guests.

But someone wants at all costs to hear him conduct again.   Starring Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel and Rachel Weisz

And finally…

It’s true… Les Guinots is fighting to continue production of their wonderful sparkling wine.  It’s taken a big chunk of my morning, but I think that the i-petition should work! 

Please show your support by adding your name to the petition.  Once Terroirs Vins et Découvertes  realise there is a following for the fizz we can try and convince them to continue the production.
