Gunfire on a Sunday evening?

 Well, probably not.

We were walking down the the tram stop from Place Gambetta, where the guillotine stood at the revolution, and as we entered the particularly smart shopping street of Cours de l'Intendance we saw a car driving at speed up a side-road, stop abruptly and make a hasty U-turn. The car was followed by a very raucous, powerful motorbike. We continued to walk and heard three loud reports, just like gunshots.

A few seconds later we heard another two from off in the side-roads around Grands Hommes, in the heart of Bordeaux' "Golden Triangle", where the city's money lives.

We looked at each other. Back-firing, we decided.
