Columbus Day

It's Columbus Day.  That means the U.S. Post Office is closed...but, of course, St. Armands Circle is open, and that's where you'll find this statue of Christopher Columbus keeping watch over the traffic circle and shops.

A school holiday here, which for me means a light traffic day.

I am appalled by how he is reviled in certain circles these days.

As B Squared said, lots of controversy around Mr. Columbus but he's still a hero..love how you synchronize with current events by the way!
