Charles de Gaulle Étoile - Avenue de la Grande Armee
This is the Avenue de la Grande Armee, the avenue directly across from the Champs-Élysées on the other side of the Arc de Triomphe. This avenue is continued by the avenue Charles-de-Gaulle as far as Neuilly-sur-Seine, towards la Défense home to La Grande Arche de la Défense, which you can see in the distant haze.
I visited La Grande Arche on my very first trip to Paris in 1989 and thus it holds a special place in my heart. Next week, more photos from la Defense.
