Photography and travel are my two passions. This blog will feature photos from my travels and little anecdotes about my experiences and discoveries.
He is as grand, and grandiose, in death as he was in life. Did you see the tomb of Marshall Foch in the corner atrium of the church upstairs from the tomb? It is a special, reverent place. A bronze statue of pall bearers carrying the coffin! Illuminated by a deep blue light filtered through stained glass windows.
Wow! Nice digs for eternity.
I think I took 50 pictures of this tomb! That church/museum was beautiful! But I always felt a little sorry for old Nappy...seems he must have had an ongoing stomach ache.
He seems to be thinking, "Ooohhh, my tummy really hurts. I wonder if that could be lead poisoning."
I've never been there. The sarcophagus is impressive! He's a hero in France and a 'persona non grata' in my country for obvious reasons - three invasions turned Portugal into a mess! The Portuguese got rid off the Napoleon troops thanks to the British allies. By the way, do you know that the alliance between Portugal and Britain is the oldest in the world?
