We jumped on the Metro, and found ourselves at another amazing Paris landmark. After walking all of those stairs, we were so happy to be in the flat lands of the Arch De Triumph. I was just really surprised how enormous it is.
To get to the actual monument you have to go down a set of stairs…
Through a long tunnel.
Up another set of stairs…and there we were. As a reminder it was Armitice Day, we watched the president lay a wreath here on TV over breakfast that morning. There was an enormous French flag to mark the occasion.
Back to the tunnel, under the road…
Onto Champ-Elysees, the Rodeo Dr. of Paris.
Oooo La la, Louis Vuitton.
Our dogs were barking. Back at the hotel…we found a place to eat and were out again before you know it.
The place we found was very Parisian, with a very un-French name: Grizzly’s. Our seats we in a covered heated area on the street. We sat at a little take, and shared some water.
We started our dinner with some traditional French Onion Soup. Which is just called Onion Soup in France.

Boeuf Bourguignon-it was SOOOO freaking good! They made theirs with mashed potatoes, and I loved it so much.
Karl had an amazing chicken.
Our dinner ended with Mille-feuille. Not the best one ever…but still really good.
We literally and figuratively crushed it.
Walking home that night, we found MORE Mona Lisas.
