Vehicles of Paris: Part 9, Bastille Day Edition
With a guest in town, there was no way we could miss the show of military might on the Champs-Élysées this morning. I failed to get a picture of President Sarkozy as he rolled down the avenue ahead of the troops, on his way to the viewing stand on Place de la Concorde. And I have no footage of the aerialists. But there were plenty of rolling vehicles on hand as well as chiseled young men in uniform. The sky was bright blue and we made it home on time to watch, on television, the landing of the parachutists. Bonne fête à tous!
