Arc de Triomphe et the Champs-Élysées

Yesterday was our last full day in Paris and we headed off mid morning and had breakfast at a cafe overlooking the Seine. We certainly paid for that privilege, because we each had the most expensive cafe au lait and croissant I've ever paid for!

We then caught the metro to the Arc de Triomphe.

After lazing around in the sun we walked the length of the Champs-Élysées adorned with high end shops with ridiculous price tags.

We stopped into the Citroen store. It was a cool building with some pretty neat cars on display.

Back home again via the Seine, and admiring the array of locks on one of the bridges.

Kien had lots of fun hunting for and picking up chestnuts whilst walking along the eastern end of the Champs, so we decided to roast them. Jef looked up the process of achieving this, but unfortunately instead of dialing in 205C he had cranked it to 250C. Exploding chestnuts make very loud bangs, and lots of mess. But it was an awesome experience.
