The old France

The above photo was taken at a junction when passing by a small village. We were waiting for a traffic light and voila, an ancient church just appeared right in front of my eyes.

One thing differentiate France, Malaysia or even USA is that every way you go, you can see old churches or chapels or buildings, the prove of a nation that has gone through many centuries. This might apply to other European countries. Each time I go back to Malaysia, I was amazed at how different these two countries are, the old buildings in Malaysia were probably built like 100 years ago, as compared to France that have buildings that could be dated to 4th century.

In front of France, Malaysia is just a baby. :-)
