From the hotel, I walked 4-5 blocks to catch the sunrise over the Arc de Triomphe. With the tree-lined streets, I couldn’t see the Arc during any part of the walk until it was right on top of me. Boom! Boy, that thing is huge.
Sunday morning, not much traffic, but loads of young people who hadn’t been to bed yet. What the heck, might as well stay up another hour and catch Nature’s daily spectacle. While waiting for the sunrise, they had to find different ways to amuse themselves.
Sunrise wasn’t all that great, but the “side shows” made it interesting.
Thought for the Day: The Arc de Triomphe is a moving monument to the many brave women and men who have died trying to visit it.
