L'Arc de Triomphe et L'Orangerie

Today was gray, misty, and cold.  Not even close to what the Weather Channel had forecasted, but I suppose it's our own fault for trusting an Atlanta company for French weather.

Anyway, the start of the day at the Pasteur stop on the Metro.

A straight shot to L'Arc de Triomphe.

On a clear day the view is supposedly many miles; today, maybe a couple.

A tunnel under the traffic circle around the Arc.

An ad on a tour bus.

Another view, from a couple blocks down the Avenue des Champs Elysees,

and our shoppers on the avenue.
 Les Jardin des Tuileries.

About here, we visited the Musee de l'Orangerie, but no photography was allowed.  It's associated with the Orsay museum and has more impressionist art.

A Metro stairway.  Yes, they are that steep and that long.

We stopped by a creperie for a late afternoon snack.  We quickly discovered that crepes are larger here, and this anything but a snack.

It may be difficult to see here, but this is mine, with sautéed apples and walnuts and flamed with Calvados.
