Sorry I haven't been posting lately, I've been too busy!
Well, scratch that, I have been too lazy, but that's neither here nor there. I am determined to make today productive!
Kate has been visiting in Bordeaux for the past couple of days (more on her visit later) and this morning she left. After a little bit of a delay with the trams/trains in Bordeaux, she made it to the train station and I went out for a run.
It helps that she forced me to put on my running clothes so I would have no excuse. I walked her to the tram and had an ipod loaded with good music. I've been pretty bad about running lately but I have vowed to run every day this week!
It was a bit cold, and the sun was hiding, but I was fine in a fleece. It's so nice to see people outside! I ran down to the river and there were loads of people out rollerblading or riding bikes. There were so many little kids dressed up from church or riding scooters.
At one point, I was walking a bit and then a man ran past me and he was smoking while he was running! Only in France...
I have yet to find out if people in Bordeaux celebrate Mardi Gras, but I do know that there is a festival going on today. "Carnaval des deux rives" (Carnival of two rivers). I will be headed down there later to check out "les grands personnes" (people wearing HUGE plastic heads).
