If you have followed the blog for a while you will know that I love reflections and I think that Water Mirror here in Bordeaux is about the best one I have seen so far. One of the reasons it is the best is that it was created expressly for the purpose of reflecting the architecture that surrounds it. Also called the “Miroir des Quais – the Quay Mirror” it covers a massive 3450 m2.

An ingenious computerized water system underneath alternates supplying 2 – 3 cm of water which when drained give the mirror effect alternates with a two meter high fog effect.

During the summer the mirror becomes a popular place where both kids and adults play around

    • Hi Paulsliwa1, we do manage to get by, people are pretty friendly and helpful, we have learned a few words, enough to be polite, food stuff for restaurants, but for the most part we have found most speak at least a little English and we get by!
