BATCUB !

Bordeaux has been rehabilitating the river over the past few years. Until just after 2000 the riverside was dirty and unsavoury - not a place you wanted to go.

But now the riverbank is a place of gardens, pleasant walks, sport, cafés, shops and

the BATCUB !

A river-bus that links the right bank at Stalingrad with the left bank at Quinconces, the Hangars and Lormont.

Very kindly the city decided to offer two weeks of free trips on the boat. You had to book online. Since Mrs Davey has LONG wanted a trip on the river, since John Edmonds was coming to visit and since the trip was free I signed us up for Monday afternoon.

Here's some photos John took. A video will follow.
