Last month while walking about Paris Kongo paid a brief visit to the Musée de l'Armée (Army Museum). In modern French history—everything since the Revolution—starts and stops with Napoleon Bonaparte. In the photograph above the emperor warrior towers above the entry courtyard in his iconic "hands inside his blouse" pose. Kongo is a big fan of Napoleon and has studied most of his battles. The Musée is an imposing place and one that pays fitting tribute to the history of this nation.
