|This is a common way of displaying carpets for sale in street markets. Rue des Ternes|
We then changed direction and walked into town along the Rue du Faubourg Saint Honore and eventually the Rue Saint Honore. There are lots of high end shops selling expensive chocolate etc. and the area becomes more exclusive as we approached the Elysee Palace. There were a lot of police and military around here together with a number of news cameramen. Maybe the president was just receiving the bad news about the increase in unemployment. We learned the next day that today someone drove a car into the gates and was taken to hospital.
Eventually we came to La Madeleine and lots of tourists.
Back to the 17th where we had lunch at a creperie - galette de Coquilles St. Jacques (scallops) in an Emmenthal sauce with leeks.
A lovely day for wandering around.
