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.
Travel safe. Have fun.

Cannons are a favorite of mine – what a fantastic color patina.
I visited about 20 years ago – I remember the courtyard and the dome – and cannons!
Thanks for bringing back the memories.
One of my favorite sights I saw while in Paris. So much to see and so much history. Your pics are brilliant! Kim
