I decided to go to what I thought was a nearby museum-from the Champs Elysees-and got a bit lost while getting there but, as usual, it was interesting along the way.
I saw two soldiers on guard on the sidewalk in front of an elaborate gate and wondered why they were there until I figured out that it was the back of the Palace for the President of France, Hollande. That’s when I realized that I had gone in the wrong direction. I had been walking an hour by now. The further out you get from the center of Paris, the longer distances are between, usually, tourist sites.
This painting was in the window of an art gallery and was done by a former grafitti artist. The painting was for sale for 800 Euros so I’m thinking she’s not doing grafitti out on the streets at night anymore.
