Thursday, December 8th: The man behind the Map Bordeaux

Bordeaux is becoming more and more well-know worlwide, so Dan created a "Le Map Bordeaux" (http://lemap-bordeaux.com/) which is a map of Bordeaux showing the main neighborhoods of the city and what to do, see, eat and drink!




He will explain his past experience and how he got the idea to create that kind of map. He will also tell us more about how he chose the information he put in the map (How many locals knew that the neighborhood of the "Grosse Cloche" is actually called "St Pierre?) and what his projects are.

The Librarian's Choice: Christmas selection
