  Statue of Liberty

I was on a Bateau Mouches cruise down the Seine. I didn't know that there was a replica of the Statue of Liberty standing proudly in the middle of the river, obviously this was something I had missed in the tour books. It made me feel very endeared to the French and heard myself saying "Viva la France". It was a great reminder that the Statue of Liberty standing in the New York harbor was a gift from France and that this gift has become the becon of freedom that the US has always stood behind. This Lady was also the first thing immigrants saw when arriving by boat, it filled them with hope for a better life. Viva la France!

This state of Liberty was a gift to France from the US in 1885 and faces the original in New York.

Directions: In the middle of the Seine near the Maison de Radio
