Our day in Paris started with a really, really early wake up call in London England. We had an 8:30 AM flight from Heathrow International Airport to Paris France that required us being picked up from the hotel at 4:30 AM. The company providing the transport to the airport really, really wants you to arrive 3 hours before the flight. We did. In fact we made it to Heathrow so quickly we had to wait almost an hour just to check in as the Airline check in service doesn’t start till 6 AM. A short flight to Paris, and our 3 days there was ready to start.

The Google says the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel was built between 1806 and 1808 to commemorate Napoleon’s military victories.
After a very early breakfast and now in our second country of the day, it was time for lunch. This is the menu from our lunch stop at La Terrasse De Pomone.
The Big Wheel at the Place de la Concorde. Sometimes it’s all a matter of perspective. That statue in front the big wheel looks like it might be 50 feet tall when compared to the 200 foot tall big wheel. It’s not. It might be at most 12 feet tall. It was just all a matter of perspective.
