A mailbox

This is what many Paris mailboxes look like. Some have got some quite interesting "street art", many have just been tagged. This one is perhaps something "in between". You could possibly ask yourself whether they all should be cleaned and repainted or not? Even historically some tagging maybe of interest? Today we can see some on ancient buildings, monuments... and we are then quite happy to see them. Look what was written, drawn...on the walls of Pompeii, in the Paris Saint Paul Church... and there are thousands of other "unauthorized" inscriptions.

With stories of 'Dirty' Paris in today's press, the city might look to tidying up its image. I was there this year, and Paris seemed fairly clean - with the possible exception of graffiti. All of central Paris is a museum and should be preserved as such. Well, that's my humble opinion.

How sad. There is now a building material made especially to prevent tagging from happening. I do not know what it is called, but the paint, when it's applied, simply just dissipates and disappears.
