I just want to show the photos about Roosevelt the metro station and the sign about Zhou close to Place d'Italie.

As to Lafayette (edit - the department store, not the general), please find out how the Traditional Chinese version of its store guide is different from the other versions.

To French people (and perhaps a few Americans) the title is misleading since all 3 are famous statesmen :mrgreen:

Read about General Lafayette here.

I don't see how the title is misleading.

I know of General Lafayette.

I grew up in Los Angeles, and they've a Lafayette Park about 4 or 5 blocks from the famed MacArthur Park of the Richard Harris song.

They filmed "White Men Can't Jump", the Woody Harrelson/Wesley Snipes movie, there.

There's a small branch library there that I used to go to all the time when I was a kid and didn't feel like making the trek into downtown Los Angeles' main Central Library.

There's also a courthouse on the corner of the same block that I've been to for jury duty.

Speaking of jury duty, by a strange coincidence, just last week I was called to serve on a case involving a traffic accident between a Korean motorist and a Guatemalan motorist that had occurred in Lafayete Park West.

I wasn't selected for the panel so don't know the outcome. :)

Interesting - no country flag on the Traditional Chinese version.

For the Korean guide, they've the flag of South Korea.

For simplified Chinese, the flag of the PRC.

There's no English guide in the photo but I wonder what flag they use there.

The British flag? An American flag? Canadian? Australian? :)

I think I see UK flag most often when traveling.
