Sunset over Paris
Call me lucky because I am! That's what I witnessed yesterday on the way back from my office. Those who've been to Paris will have recognized the typical Art Nouveau lamp so characteristic of the Pont Alexandre III. This bridge was built between 1896 and 1900 and it was Tsar Alexander III of Russia who actually laid the foundation stone in October 1896. It was inaugurated, like many other structures nearby, in 1900 for the World’s Fair.
