Cultural Traveller

Grafico Topico's Monsieur FlaneurMonsieur Flaneur shudders at the appellation "Grafico Topico's travel writer", which, if we understand this correctly, is not quite right (perhaps even something of an affront to his Gallic soul?) suggesting, he says, a certain "Anglo-Saxon high-mindedness" or "professionalism" not to his liking. He is an "amateur gourmand", he would have us understand, casually strolling the streets of our metropolises like anybody else, not judgmental at all -- a little masterpiece, a soupcon of scandal, a tasty comestible here, a tiny architectural epiphany there -- anything of that nature will do just fine. Hmmm.
