Paris - City of Light for New Year

Last night we arrived in Paris. Our hotel is perhaps 300m from Arc de Triomphe and if we are careful, we can lean out the window and see it (image 1). Before bed we strolled past the arch (2) to the top of Champs Élysées which looked very pretty with the Christmas lights still in place.

Today we walked all day, exploring streets, arcades, parks, bridges (3) iand stopping by the Eiffel Tower (4). Police were positioning barricades, towing away illegally parked cars and motor cycles and showing their presence before the crowds gather for the New Years Eve celebrations. We hope to be caught up in it.

Happy New Year to our family, friends and blog-readers. Paul and Judy
