we left the studio, which is very near the bus stop for the N° 4 that takes you back to Pessac.
What time's your bus, Alan ?
I don't know. What time is it now ?
It was 11:30 and we watched the 11:30 bus pull away. I couldn't stop it because I didn't have a ticket anyway, or any money. I had to visit the ticket machine at the tram stop.
So I did, then waited for the next bus at 12:11. It was a mild night. Bordeaux goes to bed at midnight, so the cafés and restaurants were closed and there were very few people in the streets. The buildings looked wonderful and my phone was completely dead !
