Discussion on Toulouse

mehryar :

why they call Toulouse(in France),the rose city? =pourquoi on dit : "Toulouse est la ville rose"?

Cabal :
"Because it is built mainly with bricks and they use local light red going on the pink clay to make the bricks."
mebonnet :
"When you visit the city, or look at pictures of it, you will likely notice the warm colors in the bricks and and roof. While you might not think it's all pink there are some pink-ish bricks, as well as oranges and reds and the roofs are orange. The color in the bricks and the roof is from clay."
Pxi :
"Bonjour, ."
ed s :
"No it's not because people there see 'la vie en rose' It's just because of the color of buildings, the stones Ed"
Robert M :

Where can I get some tickets for the Leicester Tigers vs Toulouse game in December in Toulouse. The Tigers website says I have to be a season ticket holder or a member of the supporters club?

Paul S :
"they normally sell tickets to non members etc... within a few days before the match if any are spare. tho 99 times out of 100 you wont get any for these games as the go like hot cakes to members and season ticket holders and are virtually sold out every match whether euro or domestic you may be able to get some outside the gates from people selling extras they have and they normally cost less or same as cost price because they want to get rid of them."
sara :

I will go to toulouse, france in the end of the month, what do you think the best souvenir i can get from toulouse?

Test aircraft A380 MSN004 flew between Filton and Toulouse with one engine powered by alternative fuel. The test, part of Airbus' research program into alternative fuel, was run in collaboration with Shell Petroleum and Rolls Royce.The fuel used was liquefied natural gas, meaning that some refineries can use their gaseous waste to produce fuel.
