While admiring the works of art inside the Gendarmes where sealing off the road in front of the Louvre to keep people from mixing with an extreme right wing political group gathering. They surrounded the Joan of Arc statue as they hold her as their symbol or emblem of their slogan "France for the French".

One of my favorite buildings in Paris. The big white church on the hill is Sacre Coeur or Sacred Heart on Montmartre as seen through the big glass clock inside the Orsay museum
I am headed to Paris tomorrow... here we have a view of one of the 37 bridges over the river Seine in Paris, the Pont Neuf or "new bridge" which is actually the oldest bridge in Paris. It was completed in 1607 and was the first bridge without buildings/houses on it- you could actually see the river as you crossed over it, revolutionary.
