Now, I didn't actually stay in the city of Bordeaux itself, but with a family in one of its neighboring towns called Bouliac. My host family's house was rather amazing and was featured in a magazine called Maisons et Bois (Houses and Wood) or something like that. The pictures from the magazine are, obviously, better than anything I ever took.
And this is from the wine country near Bordeaux, specifically Saint Emillion. It's probably the most beautiful thing I saw in my entire time in France.
As I said earlier, there are more pictures to come and I'll be uploading even more to my flickr later.
I'd also like to say that this was an absolutely incredible experience that words do not suffice to describe. If you are a high school student studying another language and would like to go to a country where it is spoken, I highly recommend the program I went with called Andeo. It's, obviously, very difficult, more than if you simply went sight-seeing with some Americans, but it is so much more rewarding than I could imagine any empty trip to see the sights could ever be.
