On today’s show, Elyse takes us to the UNESCO World Heritage city of Bordeaux and tells us a little bit of the story of Eleanor of Aquitaine as well as some of the unsettling parts of the history of Bordeaux having to do with the slave trade. We also go into the things you can visit in Bordeaux, and surprisingly we don’t talk about wine very much! Enjoy the show!
Today we take you to a small medieval village in the south-west of France called Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, in the Lot. Why talk about such a small village? Because it’s stunningly beautiful. And it was voted as France’s favorite village in 2012, which says a lot when you consider how many gorgeous villages there are in France! New today: a slide show of Annie’s pictures Saint-Cirq-Lapopie after the fold. Enjoy the show!
The Centre Georges Pompidou is one of Elyse’s favorite places in Paris, which may come as a surprise to our listeners because it’s not a visually attractive place by most people’s reckoning. What she loves about it is not only what’s inside of the museum, but also the environment and atmosphere of the place itself. Let’s see if she can sell it to us in this episode!
