The Briare Aqueduct carries the Canal latéral à la Loire over the River Loire on its journey to the River Seine in France. It replaced a river-level crossing from the canal to meet the Briare Canal that was hazardous in times of flood. Between 1896 and 2003 it was the longest navigable aqueduct in the World until the opening of the Magdeburg Water Bridge. It is part of the Canal latéral à la Loire not, as is commonly believed, the Briare Canal.
I will always remember this moment – I entered the room in the morning, Roger was laying in his armchair he liked so much, soft sunlight cocooned him in this magnifiscent atmosphere of touchy smooth jazz.. It was like a minute of complete peace and hapiness, 60 seconds of such a beautiful calm I’ll never forget..
