A Stroll on the Champs Elysees

Well, I’m back in Paris and it couldn’t be more obvious: rain, rain, and more rain. It seems like the French dress to match their constantly dreary weather – grey, black, beige. Fun! I met Shaun and his parents for some sightseeing, and since we were meeting at the etoile, I decided to walk through the Christmas market and up the Champs Elysees. The market is nothing compared to the German markets, but it has its quirks. Like this roller coaster for the kiddies…

I also took note of this lovely addition to the Parisian landscape, which bemused me but made me die inside. I thought Paris would never sell out….

Really, Paris? Thought you were classier than that...

Oh, globalization…you kill me.
