FRANCE -11/1- ARC DE TRIOMPHE

(2009-12-24)
20091102034627(1).jpg

There are several Arc de Triomphes in Paris and Ito-chan and Mike-san had already been to two of them.
The one we went to see was the most famous one.
We got off the closest station of the arch and walked through a tunnel. It was raining heavy, so walking thorough a tunnel was the best way to get to Arc de Triomphe.
We went up steppes and then the Arc de Triompe appeared in front of me.
It wasn’t so tall but it was powerful!
I thought it was thin like a Japanese Torii but the pillar seemed like a square.
Even if it was raining heavy, many tourists gathered there.
I could see a fire under the arch.
The fire was only one soldier who died at the World War I.

As I said the entrance fee was for free.
We went into the arch, and climbed steps.
There were corkscrew staircases in the arch.
Of course, we had to walk.
We couldn’t see the top of the arch; we only see the steps.
It was too hard for me…???.... No. it wasn’t too hard. When I realized I arrived at the first floor of the arch.
There are two stories in the Arch.
They introduced world arches on video tape. They also introduced Japanese Torii.
I wanted to explain that the Torii was not for human, it was a sign for gods.
Anyway, we looked at the first and the second floor, and went to outside.
I didn’t think I could go outside, so I was a little surprised…
The view from the arch was amazing.
The last destination of all streets was the arch. It means when you are at the arch, you stand up the center of Paris!!!
It was still raining, so the cars and streets lights were reflecting on the streets.

We stayed there….I don’t remember, probably 10 or 15 minutes, and leave the arch.
At a souvenir shop, I bought Eiffel tower pasta. I don’t know why I bought it there….

Visiting the ache was the best choice on the first day in Paris.

Re: タイトルなし

パリの道はゴタゴタしていて分かりにくいけど、シュっと遠くまで見渡せて広い通りにでるととても分かりやすいですね。
なんとなーく建てたのではなく、きちんと計算されていてとても美しい。
高いところに上っても、日本だと今は他のビルしか見えないけど、パリはそんなに高いところに上らなくても景色が良くてとてもいいです。
そういう国づくりができるっていうのがちょっと羨ましいです。

私も、パリに行ったとき、凱旋門上りました。(ついでにエッフェル塔も・・・)
凱旋門の上から、どちらかの方向を見ると、その道路の先に新・凱旋門が見えました。
上からだと、パリの道路が放射状になっているのがわかって、なかなか良い観光ポイントだと思ったのを覚えています。
