A Morning in Sarko's Front Yard
Wednesday's field trip took us to President Sarkozy's extended front yard. How nice it is. I am refering to the green belt between the Rond Point and the Concorde on the Champs-Elysees just outside the Elysee Palace gardens.
Just beyond this magnificent gate lies the Elysees Palace, where the President of France resides. Notice the cock on the top of the gate which is the symbol of France.
We were here to see "le plus ancien Guignol theatre" in Paris with the kids in my daughters class. I was quite excited based on my last viewing of such puppetry at the Theatre du Luxembourg. This time, the show was not even in the same category as the other. It was cute, and we sat in the sun to enjoy it, but it was not the spectacular show that we saw at its rival, "the vrai".
The man who ran this theatre was quite the character.
