That's so interesting, I had no idea! How cool :) Well, they say that every road leads to Rome so...I guess that's the birth place of many things. Thank you for your comment on my blog!

Interesting!

Birgit said...

She does look Roman, given by France to the U.S. who now are wanting to close its borders

Very cool!

Yes Birgit. Maybe the French should take it back.
The words on it are now a mockery.
