Yesterday was the 1st May, the Fête du Travail, the only day in the year when there are no buses or trams at all.
It fell on the first Sunday of the month, which is Bordeaux 'No Car Day" when cars are banned from the city centre.
So we reluctantly cancelled our service.Almost all our folk come by mass transit, and if we had reserved a Citiz car then we would not have been allowed into the city centre anyway and we'd have had trouble parking.
So some folk came to our place and we spent an agreeable day together.
As the day unfolded we saw lots of aeroplanes taking off and landing from Mérignac airport.
I wondered whether some of the people arriving would end up stuck or would have to pay a fortune for taxis into the city. A good day to be an Uber driver!
