Postcard from Paris, France


Yumiko gave me a postcard from her business trip to Paris - it even had a stamp on it, but she didn't have time to write me a message. I thought today would be a good day to show a picture of the Arc de triomphe de l'Etoile...it is Armistice Day being the eleventh day of the eleventh month.

Although it was built between 1806-1836, I always associate the Arc de Triomphe with the end of the First World War (11/11/1918 - exactly 90 years ago). A day to relect on the pointlessness of war. Please check Harry's War (in the margin on the left) to see if Harry Lamin survived WWI.

Yumiko says she didn't enjoy Paris! Maybe she can tell us why?!
