From Paris With Love

Place des Abbesses, Montmartre: In a quiet little park away from the bustling throng of tourists is where Le Mur des Je t’aime can be found. With the phrase ‘I love you’ written in over 300 languages, the wall figures perfectly as a shrine for visiting couples on an excursion to the City of Romance. Yes, it’s enough to make you want to reach for the sick bag. But wait! Before you do, see the wall for what it is: a marvel of language, not love! To have in one place the code and script of such a variety of languages is quite something to behold.
