When the arch dresses up...


ON the night of the arrival of Le Tour de France they apparently had a huge light show on the Arch of Triumph, on top of the Champs Elysées. Again, I was not there since I'm on vacation, but I saw that a friend of mine - Stacie (and not Tracey like I originally wrote shame on me!) who is American, but currently lives in Paris to fulfill her dream (of living in Paris!) posted some neat ones on her Facebook page. I asked her if I could "borrow" them, just to show you and she said yes! So here you go...

  5. When watching this on TV on Sunday night, I thought "Eric's going to be annoyed that he missed all this" but thanks to Tracey you didn't!
    The special celebrations were for the 100th birthday of the Tour.

  6. No one does a light show like the Parisians. Very obliging of Stacie not Tracey to let you borrow these—and good for her for fulfilling her dream!

  7. OOooops really sorry! I don't know why I called her Tracey initially, but her name is definitely STACIE! Merci Stacie...
