Here are some unrelated photos, all taken with my Iphone as I was here and there in Paris.
A view of the Arc de Triumph from the side. It was just nice to get another angle as I am so often seeing it from the front. It’s been the stage for a lot of action in the last couple of weeks, first with Veterans Day here in France and the laying of the wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier and then, yesterday, a visit from the newly elected President, Hollande. It poured and his suit was soaked. I saw this on the TV as I wasn’t there in person.
Some McDonald’s in Paris now have a little coffee section and you can even get their macarons. This sign shows a cafe gourmand, a little plate of tiny desserts to go with your coffee which many restaurants now serve.
