Civilisation

“Not far from this lodging, to the right of the road, stood some pillars on which the heads  of three or four malefactors were exposed to view: this is always a re-assuring sight, and proves that one is in a civilized country.”

– Theophile Gautier, 19th Century traveller in Spain.

(noted 21/1/77)
