Resuming my San Francisco theme, the Golden Gate Bridge is as iconic as the Eiffel Tower. Its color, International Orange, was chosen partly for its visibility in the fog — a frequently required feature.

This view of the bridge happens to be from San Francisco’s Legion of Honor museum, which has a significant Paris influence. The museum building is a scaled replica of the Légion d’Honneur in Paris, houses in its collection a Parisian salon interior from the 18th century, and even has a Louvre-like glass pyramid in its courtyard. Clearly I’m not the only one who feels you can never have too much Paris.
