This week’s challenge asks people to “document the world beneath your feet”
I immediately remembered my visit to Clermont Ferrand in France where the streets had little medallions encrusted in them. During my visit I recognised that the medallions represented the famous citizens of the city: Vercingetorix, Pope Urban II, Blaise Pascal and Comtesse G (Countess Brayere) who vested Montferrand with the power to become a city (in the 12th century) and yes there were originally two towns Clermont and Montferrand that got combined. Anyway the point is that until I started reading up on Clermont today I didn’t realise that these medallions actually indicate walking paths- for tours around the city. Proves you learn something new everyday.
