Was there. Flying through. Four days.
What a place to walk.
From colony to colonial power. Mindtwisting trip.

At least when they were doing it the French got the architecture right.
Monument to a powerhouse faded. Disney world of world domination.
Damned good museums. Former palace grounds turned everyman parks - that's what they got. And good cheese.

Our little shrub of a Napolean keeps the good stuff behind corporate walls.
When, I wonder, will we see the parks and treasures of the new empire? Will Haliburton cough up any sculpture to gawk at?

And where is today's Picasso, today's Guernica?
There's no lack of material.
