Sunday in Paris

Sunday being a typical "Mall Day" at home, it's a little bit odd to find everything close this big city. If you hadn't plan to be in a museum or stay at home, you just better head to Champ Elysées where at least half the stores are open to shopping addicts, or someone looking for something to do. I´m not really in shopping mode as I really just have a carry-on bag with me. But it's a historical avenue for strolling where in 1800, women used to come here and show off their most fashionable clothes. And today, it's the avenue where you find one big brand after another, plus the cafés.
It didn't rain the day before so I didn't bring my umbrella today, which of course is a sure-fire way to start one! Fortunately it caught me while I was very near a bus stop where I took shelter, could be better if I was near the Grand Palais!
I was looking for the building of LV, half worried that I may have missed it and have to walk back, I was a bit tired, had to take a "pause café", but finally found it near the end of the street. If you plan to go there directly, should get off the metro of Charles V instead. I'm also getting the hang of this metro thingy, and the café life, feeling parisienne ;)
