    It's a mechanical elephant, part of a series of crazy machines, inspired by Jules Verne and Leonardo da Vinci in Nantes. Blog post coming soon. We went on it on Friday.

    Um, yes what is this? I can see it is an elephant but it's not the sort of elephant I am used to seeing.

    ha ha, it's a giant mechanical elephant! Inspired by Jules Verne and Leonardo de Vinci

    OMG now I am soooo jealous - this elephant is on my bucket list but it is a bit of a trek from us and I have not found the time to organise a trip there. Was it good? Did you go on it? JEALOUS!!!

  • Guest
    Phoebe lundi, 11 avril 2016

    even more of a trek from us Rosie! You could do it in a weekend, why not give it a go on one of the long weekends in May....Nantes is such a cool place. Yes we went on it but there's much more to the "machines de l'île" than just the elephant, and all that goes with it is just as interesting. You must go!
