Bordeaux

At the end of 1980 during my junior year of college, I lived in Bordeaux for about three months learning French before going to Togo for the rest of the school year. I remember it being old & rainy. I don’t remember any French people jogging, nor the city as fun & vibrant as it seems now. There was a huge and very ethnic market outside the big cathedral, there were hundreds of people strolling (& jogging) along the pedestrian street of St. Catherine’s and along the Garonne (Gironde), and there was an amazingly huge & fun carnival set up in one of big open areas in the city. We only stayed two nights, but had a great time…
