  • New video: 'Welcome Arthur', the 2016 remake 1 week ago A few weeks ago, reader Conchi shared a link on her Facebook page which led to the Institut National de l'Audiovisuel's website and a delightful if somewhat bizarre short film entitled "Welcome Arthur".The film serves as an instant journey back in time to Bordeaux as it was in 1962. And, as its...
  • Philippe Serra's Alhambra scrapbook 2 weeks ago In the days that followed the recent publication of a piece about the Alhambra concert hall, I was struck by the number of stories shared by people in Bordeaux, who clearly cherished many happy memories of the venue. Many of the tales I read were recounted by Philippe Serra (pictured left), one of...
  • Swimming in sunflowers: Gironde's 'piscines Tournesol' 2 months ago What is the connection between the 1968 summer Olympic Games in Mexico City and the Gironde towns of Braud-et-Saint-Louis, Cestas, Lesparre-Médoc and Saint-Médard-en-Jalles?

Dear Tim, I came across your blog very recently. I like your writing style and I got very interested about it. I wonder if you have written any blog about the best neighbourhoods to live in. I would like to see something beyond the TripAdvisor sort of opinions. I am sure you can grasp the character of each region in and around the city in a way that few can. Moreover, the eyes of a local/foreigner will give me the right perspective. I have a special interest in this subject because it is very likely that I will move with my wife to Bordeaux to take over a professorial position. I have lived before in Versailles, France, for few years (as well as in Brazil, US, Canada, Spain, and Canada again). So, France is not very strange to me although the French language is a far acquaintance to me. I would value tremendously any information on this subject.

Leave some love for this blog:
