The Champs Elysees turn into a giant Olympic stadium
I know it's hard to believe but I took all these photos yesterday afternoon on the Champs Elysées! How is that possible? The most famous avenue of Paris was turned into a giant Olympic stadium for the day to promote the bid of Paris for the Olympics for 2012. It will surely not influence the final decision of the Olympic committee but it gave the Parisians a very unusual show...
In addition to these kinds of events, the French Olympics task force has produced two great web sites: the official one (available in English and French) and a more touchy-feely one where you can see the TV commercial that is, in my opinion, a real masterpiece (click on "Voir le film TV" on the upper right orange banner) and/or choose the English version of the site on the left bottom of the screen.
