Paris: Walking on Les Champs-Élysées

First time in Paris! I am here for business, but managed to add extra days for sightseeing, which I always do.

Today I walked around Les Champs-Elysees. Shopper’s paradise. Very center of the fashion capital of the world. Everything was too expensive for my standard, but it sure was fun to look around.

Famous Arc de triomphe de l’Etoile. Landmark tends to be either bigger or smaller than one’s expectation. This was one of bigger ones. It was more like thicker, or almost heavier.

I tried to think and daydream how it must have looked like when it was originally built, but in vain. Crazy drivers around this landmark completely distracted me. 🙂

Street of Paris. You know those good-looking models in fashion magazine or GAP commercial? People look and wear like them are actually walking on the street! Welcome to Paris.

Louis Vuitton. Not that I am interested, but they say this is the biggest Vuitton store. Really was! I got lost and almost trapped inside.

Something I did not expect to find in Paris street. On the second day here, I am feeling at home already.
