L'Arc de Triomphe

Today is Christmas, so much of Paris is quiet and still. And freezing! Today has been the coldest day yet, not lending itself to being outside for long, especially when trying to get over a cold.

We made a couple of stops, first one to Le Passage du Grand Cerf... which would have been a nice shopping street to walk down, but it was closed... and I got a tour down the seediest street I'VE ever been down in Paris... we made our way out of there pretty quick.

Next, we trotted over to L'Arc de Triomphe.

And then we took a walk down the Champs Elysees. It was crowded and more touristy than any place we have been yet. We decided to beat the freezing cold by going to the movies (thanks for the idea Lori) and saw "The Tourist" which was bittersweet... because we should have been in Venice right now and that's where the movie is set... sigh... but it was a nice theater and Johnny Depp is a dream boat... so overall it was a good idea. :)

Tomorrow we're going to try to go to Versailles. And in 2 days, Marc and Sherris will be here! Merry Christmas to everyone at home.


  1. Merry Christmas! What an excellent way to spend it. :) Can't wait to read about Versailles.

  2. Merry Christmas!! I miss you like crazy, friend! Glad you and Noah are enjoying Paris. Have a blast at Versailles!

  3. Miss you too, Leslie... had a dream you were at my house and we were cooking dinner, yummy fried eggplant and such... come back and visit me soon!
