The heatwave continues. Yesterday Karen and I headed off to Bordeaux for the
day. We needn't have worried about the heat as we cooled off under the
wafting chill water mist which is pumped up from underground at Le
Miroir d'eau, the water 'mirror', opposite La Place de la Bourse, the old stock exchange.
It seemed the entire city had descended there to chill down. After a good few minutes mist, the water pumps up through the pavement, bubbling through holes and floods the entire square to a depth of a few inches. Very refreshing.
