Sunday 1 January - Champs Elysees

The Champs Elysees was blocked off for vehicular traffic this afternoon leaving it clear for pedestrians.  There was a parade which started at the bottom end at 1400  moving up the eastern lane and returning on the western side. The whole parade took about 55 minutes to pass us. It was a lot of fun with marching bands from many locations both within France as well as North and South America. It was an impressive performance and I took lots of video
Police vehicles were used to block off the pedestrian area and access was controlled by secuiry checks.

One of the marshals used a Segway

On the way back we called in at Lenotre to get  couple of desserts;
