The tram in Bordeaux is quite simple as there are only three main lines. Being a much less expensive city that others in comparison, ten rides were only 6.10euros.
Tower Pey-Berland sits near; however, it was closed for some unknown reason. Thus, we went to Saint-Michel Basilica. The Gothic church measures over 350 feet high and a view from the top provides magnificent views of the city.
We went straight to Tour Pey Berland, which resembled the Duomo in Milan with its towers and columns. The bell tower was constructed in 1440 and was named after the Archbishop of Bordeaux, Pey Berland.
We bought some chocolate chaud (hot chocolate) at a local shop - it was so small that it didn't even have a name! Afterwards, we headed off to meet our CouchSurfing host, Clothilde Vg! The very first thing the French girl said to us was, "We're going to cook dinner for you!" Success!
The house was tres grande! There were four bedrooms and a pull-out couch for Leslie and me. We had some wonderful chicken with Clothilde, her boyfriend, and two of the roommates. We definitely got to practice our Francais as the only one that spoke English was Clothilde!
We spent the rest of the night speaking "Franglais" with two local French boys. They had quite a time speaking English with us and it was a good time had by all!
