After leaving the Arc, Ethan got suckered by a Gypsy woman, so I extricated him from her pleas for money and we decided to walk for a bit down the Champs Elysees. We were worried that it would start raining, so we planned to walk just a little ways and duck into a metro station once the rain hit. Well, it didn't rain. The rest of the day was gorgeous and sunny. We ended up walking aaaaaaaalll the way down the Champs Elysees to Place de la Concorde where there is a huge obelisk that was graciously gifted to the French by the people of Egypt (if you cannot detect my sarcasm, you should be reading another blog now....) We made a detour along the way at Rond Point, stopping by the Grand and Petit Palaces (beautiful buildings), then back over to Place de la Concorde.
