Beau comme un camion
This brand-new garbage collection truck in Valetta, the capital city of Malta, has to be the most handsome of its kind in the world. Valletta, or as the French call it, La Valette, was named for its French founder, Jean Parisot de La Valette (1494-1568).
An awestruck onlooker was left bouche bée.
un camion: a truck or lorry
un camion poubelle: a garbage truck
bouche bée: open-mouthed
beau comme un camion: handsome as a truck, literally; pretty as a picture, figuratively
