Yay!! Arrived at our hotel early in the morning
Our hotel lobby
(4) Day 1 - A little wet in the morning (9 am here) but cleared up as the day goes on. Our hotel Marriott on Champs-Elysees is in the background with the Christmas lights.
The world-famous Avenue des Champs-Elysees - it's all that and more!!
I LOVE the Nokia City Lens with Augmented Reality!! There is NO better way to find your way around a new city (Champs-Elysées Paris here) than this!! So where did we end up? Yup, McDonald's, 0.05 miles miles down the road.
Random car on a side street...
Not sure what the deal with this is.. but they are around all day and apparently you can drive these for 89 euros.. maybe just around the circle!?
We were getting some coffee when we found Brandon's long lost brother! Arcade de Champs Elysees
Starbucks. Realllly sloooow service and used trays everywhere.
Found the French version of SurFace.. Get it?
Took a much needed nap in the afternoon and visited the amazing Arc de Triomphe.. 10 minute walk. You can't hear it but a band is playing..
This is pretty wild, too..

After dinner found an amazing Christmas Market on the other end of the Champs-Elysees!! Magical
These sausages are so yummy!
Day 2 - the Louvre!
There it is.. between the heads of the two girls..
In the presence of one of the most famous works of art ever.
Place de la Concorde
