My Deepest and Most Profound Apology
Over the past few weeks I have received many funny images / jokes and have e-mailed them to friends who I thought shared the same sense of humour. Unfortunately, I seemed to have upset a few people and received criticism for being sexist and shallow. As you know, I have a strange sense of humour and would like to say sorry to all that I have offended.
So, from now on I am only E-mailing pictures of old monuments, nature and other cultural sights which are educational for your mind.
Below is a picture of the Pont Neuf Bridge in Toulouse, France.
Pont Neuf, Quai de la Daurade, Toulouse, France
This is the oldest and most beautiful bridge in Toulouse. It was built between 1544 and 1632, and Louis XIV himself crossed it in 1659. Flooding of the Garonne destroyed all the previous bridges, but this one has been in place for four centuries, thanks to tunnels above the arches, which allow water to flow away during floods. From the right bank there is an exceptional view of the Hotel-Dieu and the Prairie des Filtres Park; from the left you can see the Daurade and Tunis quays. The two bridges either side are the Pont-Saint-Michel (upriver), and the Pont-Saint-Pierre (downriver). The latter offers an excellent view of the Pont-Neuf.
