So where were you 12 months ago? Me, I was celebrating Christmas and the New Year with some Australian friends in France. Bordeaux, to be specific, for seeing in the New Year. Fine wine, fine food, fine friends, could you ask for more? Before it got dark we took ourselves off for a typical tourist wander in downtown Bordeaux and came across this public iceskating rink. I could have stood there for hours capturing everyone on the ice. Oh la la, c’etait simple mais formidable!
