Bastille Day in Paris

Posted by SD Tri-girl on Aug 11, 2008 8:33:05 AM

I was lucky enough to go to Paris on a business trip, and arrive on Bastille Day, their day of independence.  Celebrations were everywhere. All the museums were open for free, including the Louvre, and the military groups were showing off their favorite toys.  The weather was great so I hopped on a river boat and stopped off at the major stops.

 

People everywhere at the Arc de Triumph.

 

One of the military guys walking around.  They were all in full uniform in super hot weather.

 

Cool helicopter being shown off.

 

Classic shot of the Louvre.  I had to go in and see the Mona Lisa picture.

 

 

This is what it looks like from inside the pyramid.

 

No trip to Paris is complete without visiting the Eiffel Tower.

I currently write this from the western part of Puerto Rico. When I get back, I have 2 weeks before I leave for Australia - I'll be taking the new Sony GPS unit with me to track where I go and the fun places I'll be hiking and diving. Can't wait!
