Les Invalides, Paris Day 1 Part 3

From the Grand Palais we travelled to Les Invalides which is home to the French War Museum and Napoleons Tomb which interested Ed and provided some good photo opertunities for me. We arrived shortly before closing so only walked around the courtyard this day and planned to come back the next day so Ed could check out the exhibitions in more detail.

The courtyard was lined with cannons from many different eras, some of the older cannons had amazing decoration on them, intricately carved designs, each cannon dedicated to someone different. One of the many indicators of what a different time this was.
