Musée de l’Armée

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.

A Walk in Paris

The magical Avenue des Champs-Élysées in the heart of Paris.  Kongo grew up watching movies of romantic interludes on this fabled street, recalls the news reels of victorious armies marching beneath the Arc de Triomphe and during a recent first visit to Paris the little monkey got to see it all first hand.  It’s a great walk.
