Week 42 – # A4 Patroitism

on June 1, 2016

I was pleased that my timing worked out to catch the Ceremony for the unknown soldier at the Arc de Triomphe.  It happens each day at 6:30 and veterans and children come march a short distance Avenue des Champs-Élysées towards the traffic circle and to the Arc.
