It’s always practical and fresher near water when it’s hot.
Bordeaux has a way to freshen people up, and notably to cheer the kids up! Go to miroir d’eau or water mirror, the largest reflecting pool, just in front of Place de la Bourse, facing up the quay. It’s only lit up during summer (at least when it’s hot already).
Once the water spray/atomizer turned on, and kids would go frenzy like this….
And when the night falls, I assure you it’s worth waiting, to see the reflection of lights .. mirroring the surrounding, especially lights up the pond…
