Miami Could Learn a Lot from Bordeaux!

Back in July, my hubby and I booked a last minute trip to France in anticipation of our new baby and the imminent halt on our wanderlust. Kudos to my girlfriend who suggested the trip- a wine tour in the hills of Bordeaux! She booked a lovely B&B on the outskirts of the city, and we rendezvoused at Bordeaux's newest gem--the Cite du Vin--a museum dedicated to wine.

Here's a town that bustles with activity.

This museum is a result of the current mayor's flurry of public improvements over a 20-year period. Wine museum shaped like a decanter--check!

Careful placement of wine museum in the seedy industrial edge of town to attract funky new buildings--check! See the cranes!
