Arc de Triomphe - The Arch
This week, another icon of Paris - the Arc de Triomphe. Paris' Triumphal Arc sits in the center of Place Charles de Galle at the western end of the Champs-Élysées and honors those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary and the Napoleonic Wars.
(In the interest of full disclosure I think it is important to point out that I did not take this picture. I neglected to photograph the arc in all its glory - doh! - so thanks to my friend Sean for this pic :)]
