Bordeaux is a port city in southwest France, with one million
inhabitants in its metropolitan area at a 2008 estimate. It is
the capital of the Aquitaine region, as well as the prefecture of
the Gironde department. Its inhabitants are called Bordelais.
We arrived in Bordeaux around 5:00. Tomorrow we head to Paris…our final stop.
…a little hill with church, tourist shops and that was about it. Amelia, Donna and I had a pizza. It rained like July
29: We stopped in a village for a.m. break and larger village for lunch. A large dike divided the city and river.
Bordeaux to Paris
We drive to the Loire Valley to see Amboise Castle, where Leonardo da Vinci is
buried. Then a photo-stop at the Chateau of Blois before arriving in Paris.
