Arc de Triomphe
Det var ret nemt at komme derhen med metroen.
Først var vi hele vejen rundt om inde på pladsen og så bl.a. "Den Ukendte Soldats Grav", hvor der brænder en evig ild. Eller. Den bliver tændt igen hver aften.........
Yesterday, we went to Arc de Triomphe on Champs-Élysée. It is very impressive to look at, but we also looked forward to seeing the very large roundabout around it, with it's cars rushing around in several layers, without any marked lanes, but still they find their way out!
It was very easy going there with the metro.
First, we walked all around it in the centre, and saw - among other things - "Grave of the Unknown Soldier", which has an eternal flame. Well. It is re-lit every evening......
We agreed it would be fun to go to the top. And so it was! The view was amazing, but WOW, there were a lot of steps going up! After the staircase ended, it almost felt difficult walking straight ahead....
Det var nu lidt varmt i solen, så vi sad der ikke så længe.
We sat there knitting a bit. Just because. I started a sock for my oldest niece.
It was kind of warm in the sun, so we didn't stay long in that spot.
Der var utroligt meget lækkert garn som bare hang der, ligesom sidste gang jeg besøgte den.
Afterwards, we went to La Droguerie, which is described as a quilting shop. Fortunately, they hold more yarn than fabric, and I think of it as a yarn shop!
They had all the delicious yarn just hanging there, just like last time I visited.
Jeg ved ikke. De SMAGER altså bedre, når isen er en blomst!
We ended up by buying rose-ice cream on the way back.
I don't know why, but they TASTE better, when the ice cream is a flower!
