Paris Day Two Sunday Three
Upon leaving the Lourve, we walked north-west through the Jardin de Carrousel and
the Jardin de Tuileries. That's where we saw the Obelisque on the Place de la
Concorde. This afforded a great view of the Eiffel Tower. We left Concorde up the
Champs Elysees to the Arc de Triomphe. After a brief rain shower, we got some
great shots of the Arc and the Eiffel Tower in the distance.

Champs Elysees
12 different streets meet at the Arc de
Triomphe. Here's a black and white of the
Champs Elysees from the Arc.
Seth and Eiffel
The lights around the Arc helped in getting
good shots of the Eiffel Tower at night.
Eiffel Tower
The open space allowed you a great view
of the Eiffel Tower. We'd go up there on
Tuesday.
Jason w/ Eiffel
The open space on Place Charles de
Galle had great views of Paris. Jason with
the Eiffel Tower in the back.
Seth at the Arc
Got some funky shots of the Arc with the
new camera. Here's me with a sepia look.

The Arc de Triomphe at Place Charles de
Gaulle
After our walk up the Champs Elysees and the time we spent at the Arc de
Triomphe, we were ready for some food and a couple of beers. Being Sunday,
we also wanted to watch some NFL football. We'd like to thank the Hotel
Balzac for giving us info on The Bowler, an English pub that showed NFL
football. We enjoyed pub grub and met some Brits while we watched the
Bronco/Patriot game. After a Metro train home, we found that the bar two
doors down from our hotel had the game too! A nightcap there ended the
second day of our tour.
