行完百貨公司，太太說附近有一個地方要帶我去。原本 Opera 後面的街道，看似冷清，但原來是名店及高級餐廳林立的地方。 我們走到一個廣場，中間有一條不太高的柱，太太說，就是這兒了。這一條柱，很特別，因為不是石建的，而是一條用銅製的柱。後來，我找過一些典故，才知道這是為了慶祝戰爭勝利的 monument。而用的銅，就是以戰利品當中的1200門大炮而製的。 more »After the company, my wife said there was a place nearby to take me. The street behind Opera, which was originally deserted, was originally a place of famous shops and high-rise dining. We walked to a room where there was a column that wasn't very high, and my wife said, that's it. This column, very special, because it is not built of stone, but a column with a swashes. Later, I looked for some allusions, only to know that this is to wish the good of the monument. And the use of the dragonfly, is to the profit of the 1200 cannons in the company.
