Statue of Abraham Lincoln in namesake park, Polanco, Mexico City

— I suppose it shouldn’t have surprised us to find a statue of Abraham Lincoln in a park called Parque Lincoln. Kathryn and I enjoyed a twilight stroll through this calm, tree-lined park in the upscale Mexico City neighborhood of Polanco after having a lovely dinner at a pizza restaurant nearby. After that, we took a half-hour Uber ride back to the not-so-upscale Mexico City neighborhood where our hotel was located.

— I don’t generally follow the news over the weekend. When I scanned the headlines this morning, I discovered that Pamela Anderson had stirred up a bit of controversy late last week in France, at least enough to merit an article in a regional newspaper. She had posted a photo of herself on social media, posing under the bronze statue of a matador in front of the Arènes in Nîmes, France. Apparently it was part of an anti-corrida campaign that ties in with her long-running animal activism.
