A Picture of One City

As fate would have it, I found myself in Paris within a week of finishing the selection for QMBC IX - Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities. Paris has changed somewhat since the Revolution (no doubt the Barber would be taken aback on seeing a monument to an Egyptian God-King occupying the space where he did his daily shaving) but she remains a centre of high culture, as ever, inspiring lofty thoughts in the minds of all who encounter her.
