Paris- Summer 1997

Avenue des Champs-Élysées
A popular promenade for the tourists and locals.  The Avenue des Champs-Élysées has long symbolized the style and joie de vivre of Paris. Encroaching fast-food joints, car showrooms and cinemas have somewhat dulled the sheen, but the 2km (1mi) long, 70m (235ft) wide stretch is still an ideal place for evening walks and relishing the food at overpriced restaurants.

The Arc de Triomphe commemorates Napoleon Bonaparte's many victories.  In the center of the arc, an eternal flame on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, a victim of World War 1, is buried on Nov. 11, 1920.  The flame is symbolically re-ignited every day at 6:30Pm. 



We had dinner planned this evening with all of Hoa's siblings, so here we are shopping around before meeting with the others.
