BORDEAUX 3 VIGNOBLES ST-ÉMILION Our three days in Bordeaux were filled with activities, many revolving around the ever- present vine. The city has been living a renaissance over the last few decades and is rapidly becoming a major tourist centre. The formerly grime- covered buildings, at least in the downtown area, have been mostly cleaned, revealing a striking architectural heritage. To solve parking problems giant underground garages have been created: one beneath the now-famous mirror fountain is a nine-storey parking lot for 1600 cars. We took a walking tour of the old town and wandered around on our own. I have divided the Bordeaux city photos into three albums. One afternoon we visited two wine regions, Graves and Sauternes. Another day we drove to the village of St-Émilion. Unfortunately la vendange was advanced this year due to the warm summer and we saw little activity in the fields.
