Paris - Day 1

We took the Eurostar train from London to Paris today. The train took about 2 hrs and 20 min. Amazing.  We're staying about a block from the Arc De Triomphe, right off the Champs Elysees. Our street is right between Hugo Boss and Louis Vuitton. Fancy. As per our routine, once we got here we walked and walked and walked. We went to the Arc De Triomphe, walked down the Champs Elysees, went to the Seine. There were several brides and grooms getting their photos taken. We were amazed that they all appeared to be Jewish, until we realized that today is sunday... We continued to Glenn's favorite - Place De La Concorde and walked back up the Champs Elysees. We'll rest a bit and go out to dinner. I'm hoping for Moroccan. :-)

Using a fisheye lens - not the most flattering.
