About Le Bout du Monde

"We drive along the river for about fifteen kilometers from the city to get there. One road to come and leave. Wedged between the levees of two rivers in a floodable zone, we call this place “Le Bout du Monde” (World’s End), referring to this dead end and almost insular aspect. The area stretches out for a few kilometers until the Loire and its tributary merge together, then continues its flow to the Atlantic ocean. Going to the railway bridge to observe the confluence and walking alongside the tracks to reach the other side is a family ritual."
