|Arch de Triomph with the French flag flying. Are all French policemen are good looking or just the ones in Paris?|
|President Sarkosay is little guy waving like all politicians.|
|The Presidential Guard on horseback.|
After that we waited and waited and waited and waited..........finally after more than an hour, three planes flew overhead trailing red, white and blue smoke. Awesome! These were followed by more and more planes and helicopters. I have never heard of bringing planes to a parade!
|The planes trailing the Tri-colors.|
|Plane, planes and more planes.|
|This guy had a bunch of medals on his chest.|
|Can't sneak up on us, we have guns to the rear.|
|Going home across the Seine after the parade.|
|The biggest applause from the crowds were for the firemen who brought up the last of the parade.|
|We have always wondered what it would be like to live on a boat in the Seinne.|
We spent the rest of the afternoon walking around Paris. Lots to see, lots of people, lots of music. We caught the metro/RER home in the late afternoon. The fireworks happened too late for us to catch the last train home, so we skipped them.
