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.
Eiffel from Arc
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.
Champs Elysees
I believe this is a shot taken up the
Champs Elysees toward Concorde and
the Lourve.
Arc Soldier
Below the Arc on street level is France's
Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The
unknown soldier is from World War I.
Jason and the Arc
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
Arc Museum
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...
Arc Flag
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!
