Paris Diary part 15

Day 17
20°, mostly sunny, partly cloudy in the afternoon.

After work, Lily, our roommate and I went to Palais de l'Élysée and the Grand Palais and Petit Palais just south of Champs-Élysées. From there, we climbed the Arc de Triomphe and looked at all the war memorabilia.

From the Arc de Triomphe, we took a very short metro ride to Boulevard Haussmann and went to the Galeries Lafayette with the large domed atrium, and Printemps with its large domed atrium. From the roof terraces of Galeries Lafayette and Printemps we could see the Palais Garnier, the Saint Augustin dome and the steel and glass roof of the Grand Palais with the Eiffel Tower behind it. It was sunny all morning, but it started to get cloudy just after lunch. The views were still great since the clouds were high and never all that threatening, and the buildings we were looking at were so low.

No hate, please. There's enough of that in the world already.
