Paris Day 2 Part 1

The next day we got up early and headed into town to look at some more of the sites. After having breakfast we went to see the Arc de Triomphe, Ed climbed up to the top to have a look at the view from the top over the whole of the town. It is quite impressive from here as you are in the centre of a giant round about and there are roads heading away from you in every direction. I did not climb as my knees would not hold up to that and touring the town for the rest of the day.

The Arc de Triomphe s the location of the french tomb of the unknown soldier which has an flame burning on the tomb the whole time and lots of flower arangements laid down around the edges of the tomb. During our time there we saw a number of young school groups who were there to see the memorials one group even sung a hymn and a number of the other members of the public joined in as well. It was lovely to watch.

After lunch we split up and went our seperate ways for a few hours which enabled Ed to check out the inside of the war museum and I nosed around one of the historical quaters having coffee in a small cafe and osing around some small second hand / antique shops.
