3. That was my first thought, too. But I figured in Paris, the sign would read: "Metro."

Or more probably "Metropolitaine".

It would say Metro, not Metra :shrug:

8. Which label?
The label in my photobucket account?

13. It's about 6 blocks away from my office.




It's a Hector Guimard reproduction of a Paris Metro station. It was given to the city of Chicago by the city of Paris as a gift.

16. Man, am I unobservant.
I've lived in this city for 13 years and I've never noticed that.

Cool present. The French can be so generous sometimes.
