Bordeaux, France<< All Articles
Wayne and I have been in the city of Bordeaux, France, for a few days. We took a side trip and walked in the walled city of Saint Emilion. Wayne bought a French beret, and I think he looks handsome wearing it! In fact, he has been mistaken as being a Frenchman! We had a private tour of Chateau Lasseque, a wine estate. Our tour guide, Monique, arranged for us to sample their 2011 vintage, which has yet to be bottled. Fantastique!
Yesterday we decided to have a light lunch, and, since we were in Bordeaux, we settled on cheese and bread at a wine bar close to the hotel. We had sampled wine at this bar the night before, so we felt confident we could communicate on our own. Wrong! When the order arrived we realized we had ordered three large glasses of wine each instead of one! I know our tour guide will chuckle when she hears about our adventure!
