Place d’Iena in Paris, there is a statue of George Washington, which was intended as a (self-centred?**) gift by the USA to France for offering the Statue of Liberty. January 2014.
**[Feb 26, 2014] as to the gift being possibly self-centred, I wish to point my readers to Amanda’s note in the comments section, which emphasises that this is not true. At a moment when the great friendship between the American and French people is once more hailed, we’ll take this opportunity to rejoice over the end of the “Freedom fries” era and other drivel.
