A great way to start your day, breakfast of canelé – little cakes indigenous to Bordeaux, a thin, caramelised shell with a slightly “puddingy/custardy” middle…

La Ville en Commun – a workshop/installation of modular architecture by Castello di Rivoli, inspired by Michelangelo Pistoletto’s concept of The Third Paradise.

  1. These are very exciting images and I love the lion – big lion fan.

    • Thanks Marie. yes, the lion is FAB…and especially with that heavy stormy sky, public art (especially sculpture) can often be so banal, but Bordeaux seems to be quite inventive in its public choices, there is also a spectacular “steam” fountain by the river…
      thanks a lot for the comment.
