In the posh new wing at Charles de Gaulle, there are hanging gardens. I had to take a close look to be sure they were live. The smoking section was outside. What a rare treat to be outside at an airport while not fighting for a place. Open sky and fresh air for smokers.

I admit to eating several times in the last year. My earlier post, 26 October 2013 with a similar image, is my fifth most viewed post. That is a close rival to “Monkey Selfie,” “Boss Sauce,” and “Paper Snowflakes.” Is it the scrumptious veal? Is it the satisfyingly crunchy bread crust? The savory sauce? The blue shutters upstairs? The healthy cabbage? The bright colors? Perhaps all those visiting Berliners searching for a familiar snack? All those academics across the street deciding on a lunch venue? No, it is because a Google image search for “KB Doner” has my post in the first ten. But then again, Google must list it for a reason.

I recognized it as a lost or abandoned finger painting immediately, but the elephant emerged only after viewing it from the proper angle. I dismissed the possibility of it being a lost pet sign due to the lack of contact information. It is far more likely to be a school, or pre-school art project. I estimate age three, but a precocious two-year old or a four-year old stuck in a mixed cohort is plausible. Then again, it could be a draft plan for the re-extantation of the wooly mammoth.
