Ooh La La! Paris! July 16, 2009

Paris! I love Paris!!

Richard & Janet took me up to the top of the Arc de Triomphe for some spectacular views of the city! The Arc is located at the western end of the famous Champs-Elysees and is a monument to all those who fought for France, particularly in the Napoleonic wars. France's "Tomb of the Unknown Soldier" is located under the arch.

Here is the view looking down the center of the Arc... (that's the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier below)

And several views of Paris from the Arch....

This is not a postcard - just another picture from the Arch....

Night is falling at the top of the arch.... time to go!

But not before one last glimpse of the Eiffel Tower at dusk....

Tomorrow we leave for home. Thank You Richard, Janet, Marc & Keith for letting me tag along on a fabulous adventure!!
