Paris New Year's Parade

I was not supposed to be in Paris yesterday, but for many reasons I decided to stay. I could witness all the New Year's festivities including, Wednesday morning the New Year's Parade on the Champs Elysées. Great moment! Not only was the parade good (mostly circus people), but also also I got to enjoy walking on the Champs Elysées without any cars! Check this little Animoto to have a better feel of the atmosphere.

    Where were you supposed to be, Eric ? I know I am curious...! But this is the least of my defaults ;-)

    Wishes for a fine new year to everyone.
    Stef, in 6 inches of snow with more to come! The strong wind is not appreciated.

    1. OMG Steverino, I wish I could beam you up in Paris right now; here it's so mild, you almost feel like you're in summer (OK, maybe not!). I wish you a good year to and well, good luck withe the snow!)
