Christmas decorations were just beginning to appear.
The Arc de Triomphe was commissioned by Napoleon in 1806 and finished in 1840, just in time for Napoleon's body to pass through it on the way to his final resting place.
The Champs Elysees is perhaps the most famous shopping street in the world. But today it seems to be mostly tourist and the curious that make up the crowd.
McDonald's on the Champs Elysees is their largest store in Paris.
School children (kindergartner's ?) on their way to an field trip.
The "T" is silent when pronounced.
Electric car charging stations.
Not on the Champs Elysees, but high end shopping none the less. Printemps and Gallery Lafayette both occupy more that a city block each and have huge crowds.
Gallery Lafayette is the most beautiful store I've seen. Looks like a palace inside with a dome reaching to the sixth floor.
Gallery Lafayette's sixth floor roof are gives great views of the city.
From the roof, the Montmartre area is at the highest point in Paris. The Church Sacre-Coeur dominates the view.
And the Eiffel Tower is...everywhere you look.
