Happy New Year to all!
I am so proud to report that I didn’t fall asleep before midnight!’ At 11:30 we joined the crowds and walked to the Arc de Triomphe. We were expecting a laser light show on the Arc, similar to what we saw for the Tour de France, and we got one at 11:45. We were so surprised, however, when fireworks started at the stroke of midnight! Paris NEVER does fireworks on New Year’s Eve (much to the disappointment of throngs of tourists every year), but this year she pulled out the stops and put on a show.
What an auspicious beginning for the new year!
Cheers to 2015, and cheers to all of you!
