Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Fun quote, but ugly? Though if I had to cast a vote for most beautiful, it would be for the Forth Bridge near Edinburgh/Scotland, I have to disagree with Mr. Michener, I find the Sydney Harbour Bridge rather nice, too.

When it's not covered with what looks like sticking plaster, that is!

I was gazing upon it from a nice pub at South Queensferry two days ago called the "Two Bridges" cos of its siutaion between the two bridges: fish and chips much recommended.

Still, my understanding is that once they've put a new long-life coating on it, the Forth Bridge won't require the continuous and Sisyphean painting it has always had...
