You know that feeling while travelling, when you don't know what you're looking at? This is a footbridge in Narbonne, from the side with the cathedral and Bishop's Palace, to the... well, the other side. Which, according to this bridge, is a whole nother town (literally: "Footbridge between two towns"). Except it isn't. It's just...more Narbonne.

Very odd. I don't really understand it. The river in Narbonne is *not* pretty, canalised and sludge green, but it's reasonably large. Maybe the other side used to be an Oltrarno, an Outremeuse, a Rive Gauche, but it doesn't seem to have a special name now. There's one other bridge across, one of those with shops on that is supposed to be picturesque and ancient - but this one is so solid with chainstores you can't tell you're on a bridge at all. Most river towns, especially ancient ones, have river views as a feature. Not this one. Below the cut, a proper view of the bridge which is as pretty a view as I could manage!
