|Françoise and Benoît – Champs-Elysées|
8:59 AM – With Françoise and Benoît of Belgium, we began our run on the Parisian western historic axis. This “royal” way begins in the Louvre with the equestrian statue of Louis XIV, crosses the garden of the Tuileries, continues by the Champs-Elysées, passes under the Arc de Triomphe and continues up to the business district of the La Defense to end at the Grande Arche.
We then continued our sports stroll along the Seine on the left bank.
In passing on the Pont des Arts, we saw the “beaches of Paris “: Paris-Plages.
Paris-Plages is an event which takes place in Paris in summer on the right bank automobile traffic lane: some sand, deckchairs, games, concerts, any sorts of activities and this year, a beautiful sand castle!
Merci Benoît et Françoise !
