  • Sculptor François Didier, the plans-reliefs of Bordeaux and Bages, and the Jardin de Casaque 5 days ago In central Bordeaux, three bronze orientation maps (or “plans-reliefs” in French) have been positioned at strategic locations. I met up with François Didier, the sculptor behind these popular hands-on works of public art, to talk about the pieces, about a similar project rolled out near...
  • Video: Tracking the river Devèze from Mérignac to Bordeaux 1 week ago Some time ago I published an item about the Devèze and my attempt to track the now mostly-underground river from Mérignac airport all the way into central Bordeaux. I recently went back and this time filmed the adventure, which you can view in this brand new Youtube clip: Click here if video...
  • The bust of Carl Linnaeus, in the words of artist Lucie Geffré 2 weeks ago One of the focal points of the Right Bank botanic gardens, as featured in the previous blog item, is the bronze bust of Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778).

  • The botanic gardens of Bordeaux 2/2: the Right Bank gardens 3 weeks ago In the previous Invisible Bordeaux item, we explored the compact botanic gardens which have been located in the grounds of the Jardin Public since the 19th century.

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.
