Sarkozy, day one
As of today we officially have a new president. This morning, he did what all new Presidents do: go to his new office (the Elysée Palace), walk a few steps on a red carpet, shake the hand of the former President (Chirac) and make a speech. He then jumped into a big car and went up the Champs Elysees, where I took this photo. Needless to say that, due to security measures, it was not an easy task... Tonight, quite sadly, I also eye witnessed the work of looters, probably anti-Sarkozy protesters.
