An American friend is in town, and today we walked and walked and walked. And walked some more. From the place Victor Hugo in the 16e arrondissement to the place St. Georges in the 9e. Our route: Champs Elysées to the Louvre to the Palais Royal to the Grands Boulevards, past Notre Dame de la Lorette.
Spring seemed to officially arrive today, with lots of showers and sunshine, and the trees had leafed out overnight.
But wait! The real news (to me anyway) is this: part way through our journey, at the place de la Concorde, something was missing.
No more Ferris wheel!
The Obelisque hasn't turned into the leaning tower; it's just the fish eye lens effect.
