While cleaning out my digital files, I found this picture taken several years ago of me having coffee at a shop by the Arch of Triumph on the Champs-Elysees if my memory is correct. I had just flown all night and was trying to enjoy some peace and quiet while watching the web.
Looking at recent news maps, it appears to be close to the recent fracas in Paris involving the satirical magazine.
I vividly remember all the traffic and the attitude of the French who we met. They must have seen themselves as tall people. It seemed like they were looking down on us because we were Americans.
