Under The City

Every city has a sex and an age which have nothing to do with demography. Rome is feminine. So is Odessa. London is a teenager, an urchin, and, in this, hasn't changed since the time of Dickens. Paris, I believe, is a man in his twenties in love with an older woman.”

I like the picture (as usual:-)) but what makes me think is the quote. I have never thougt about cities and towns like that. I love it.
By the way, I agree with the quote apart from Paris. According to me Paris is a woman in her thirties. A smart, sassy, witted and cheeky woman who doesn´t care about other people (cities) attitude.
