Flowers in Bordeaux, France
Maybe it was because it’s the only place in France where someone tried to mug me, maybe it’s because of the weather, but I found Bordeaux to be a grim city. I feel no desire to ever return, though if it’s on someone else’s dime, I’ll be delighted – still, this garden , maybe because of everything else, made me smile. It made me feel good. It made me feel like maybe I was really still in France after all.
