Sur le Pont Neuf

The visit of Emmanuel Macron has caused me to dwell on exactly how understated the French can be.  Who, other than the French, would ever dream of calling such a beautiful bridge over the River Seine the “New Bridge” (Pont Neuf). boring bâtards. Le Pont Neuf

If we ever build a bridge across the English Chanel (in French La Manche) I sincerely hope is not named – Le pont de Boris.  Personally I prefer – Le pont à brexit.
