  • History evolves: how the Beaudésert internment camp memorial plaque has changed 1 week ago It is impossible to rewrite history but we can perpetually revise our understanding and interpretation of what happened in the past. A notable example of this can be found on a plaque in Mérignac that marks the area where Beaudésert internment camp was once located. Invisible Bordeaux published a...
  • Could this be the coolest house in Bordeaux? 2 weeks ago Reader Nathan Turner, a former Bordeaux resident, recently got in touch with me about a building that he used to ride past on his bicycle when he lived in the city. By linking through to Google Streetview evidence, it was easy to see that Nathan had a point; the house definitely deserved a visit! I...
  • May 1968, the barricades and the night Bordeaux became a battlefield 4 weeks ago The eventful month of May 1968 will forever be regarded as a turning point in the recent history of France. The focal point throughout the troubled period was Paris but the unrest quickly spread throughout France. In Bordeaux the agitation culminated on the night of Saturday May 25th with a series...
  • The playable city initiative that enables conversations with the lamp posts of Bordeaux 1 month ago When, back in the 1960s, Simon & Garfunkel sang the line “Hello lamp post, what'cha knowing?”, little did they realise that come 2016 they might even get a response from the lamp post itself. For that is precisely the system that has been rolled out in Bordeaux for this year’s “Semaine...

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.
