Tuesday 12 December - Champs Elysees

I took this picture because I liked the way the light brought out the texture of the tree just off the Champs Elysees.
We are still sleeping late from jet lag but it was a pleasant bright sunny day and we went for a walk through Parc Monceau to the Etoile then down the Champs Elysees and back along the rue du Faubourg Ste. Honore.  All told about 10.6 km.  There were the usual loud mouthed oriental tourists taking selfies but the wide boulevard was not particularly crowded. There was a large climate change conference in progress with a lot of important people attending.  Half of the Champs Elysee was cordoned off  by police and there was a row of at least 100 limousines waiting to take the Mr. Bigs back to their hotels - I wonder how  many of these burnt gasoline.
On the top of the Hermes building on the rue du Faubourg Ste. Honore.
A very pleasant walk as long as we could avoid the police cordons.
