|Paris Day Five Wednesday Three
|We'd been to the Arc de Triomphe several times during our trip. Tonight, we were
climbing to the top for another night view of Paris.
|Our walk from Orsay to the Metro took us
back through Concorde. The Eiffel Tower
was just over the river in the distance.
|Night views of Paris are dominated by the
Eiffel Tower. Most other locations are too
dark to photograph. But the Eiffel Tower
was quite easy.
|I believe this is a shot taken up the
Champs Elysees toward Concorde and
|Below the Arc on street level is France's
Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The
unknown soldier is from World War I.
|The walk from Concorde to the Arc would
have taken over 30 minutes. After a 5
mintue Metro ride, I caught Jason in
|Another view of the Eiffel Tower from the
Arc de Triomphe
|Within the Arc there was a small French
military museum. I'm not sure where this
statue was from, but we thought this
would be a good shot...
|On this particular night there was a
massive French flag above the soldier.
|What a final view of Paris. We left the Arc and walked down the Champs Elysees to
the next Metro stop. Our hotel area was a quick 15 miute ride. We walked around
the area to get some dinner and a few final Paris brews. We were leaving early the
next morning for Charles De Gaulle and our new port of entry: Amsterdam!
