Armistice Day

There was quite a hullaballoo today at the Arc de Triomphe for Armistice Day, to honor those who fought in WWI and WWII. A huge French flag flew from the inside of the Arc, and several hundred people in uniform were under and around it playing instruments or saluting.

It was our first public sighting of French President Sarkozy, albeit we could only see him on the big screen.

The kids had a lot of questions about wars going on now. I tried the best I could to explain what I don't understand to them. It's a crazy world kids.

I tell the kids that its pretty much the USA against everybody. It helps to just keep it simple.
