The Triumph of Paris?

Triumfbuen paris

In late June 2010, I went with a large group to Paris (France, not Texas as the norwegian soda Solo has been using in their commercials this summer), and during that trip, we got to see quite a few typical places to see when in Paris. The Arc de Triomphe is a well-known site to visit, and around it one can find what I think of as one of the scariest round-about I’ve been in.

The Arc de Triomphe was built between 1806 and 1836, and stands in honor of those who fought for France. In particular, those who fought the Napoleonic Wars, but the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from the first World War can also be found there.
