Reflections of Bordeaux
"Le Miroir d’Eau” near the Garonne River is a delightful place for an afternoon of people watching in one of France’s most enduring and picturesque cities. While photographers focus on the reflections of the Place de la Bourse in the mirror of water, children and fun-loving adults dance through the fine mist that spews every 15 minutes or so. Bordeaux’s once grimy waterfront has been replaced with exquisite gardens, walking and bicycle trails, and cafés that attract local families, street musicians, lovers, and tourists. A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2007, Bordeaux offers culture, heritage, fine cuisine, and — of course — the world’s greatest wines.
