Sarkozy on Africa? Bad idea...bad idea!

Sarkozy in Dakar (26th July 2007) where he held a very controversial speech at the University.
A very large part of French-speaking Africa - starting with the youth he chose to address - found his words absolutely incredible, if not frankly shocking...

In his speech Sarkozy said: "The African peasant only knows the eternal renewal of time, rhythmed by the endless repetition of the same gestures and the same words."

"In this imaginary world where everything starts over and over again, there is no place for human adventure or for the idea of progress"

That*s what you call bad ghostwriting!

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
