Busy in Bordeaux

We have been awfully busy lately. Among other things, we have been looking at the architecture of the city, which is pretty incredible and we still have a lot to see. Below, for instance is a iPhone panoramic photo taken inside one of the churches in St Emilion in the Bordeaux region of France.

In addition to these types of visits, we have 3 hours of French class daily (sometimes with homework). After class we often have some other activity organized by Road Scholar. For instance, just recently we went to an outdoor market in Les Halles (with the Road Scholar group) for lunch.

From there we went to the Cite du Vin where we visited the Wine Museum.

Of course we had a glass or two at the top of the museum while overlooking Bordeaux. 

A few days later we went back to the Wine Museum to participate in a wine tasting presented by a professional taster. I wonder how you get that job! Anyway, it was a terrific presentation and we learned a lot about how to evaluate different wines. 

A few iPhone shots from these activities are included in this blog post.   

There are lots of other things we have to report on, including a photo walk and a day trip to St Emilion. More about those later.
