Remembering Bourguiba
This past August 3rd marks the 113th birthday anniversary of the Father of Modern Tunisia, the late Habib Bourguiba . 

Just like Hannibal in ancient times, he was paid tribute to by the very people he fought: the Esplanade Habib Bourguiba was created in 2004 on the wooded part of the Quai d'Orsay (Paris-7e) in his memory.  
On March 20, 2013, the 57th anniversary of the independence of Tunisia from France, a life size bust sculpture of him was erected on the esplanade.
