From the station we walked towards the Opera house. We stopped by a church along the way, there are heaps around the city
Finally arrived at the Arc de Triomphe and what a sight it is. People are not kidding when they say this roundabout is the craziest in the world - it is pure mayhem. Cars come from everywhere and I worked out that the cars already in the roundabout must giveaway to the ones entering it (which is the opposite to how a roundabout is meant to work) and as such horns were going off left, right and centre. To have to go through this roundabout as a tourists trying to find your way somewhere would have to be one of the scariest things you could ever do, I wouldn't do it. The Arc itself is also quite a sight too. A very beautiful structure. We had planned to walk all the way back down the Champs Elysees all the way to the Louvre but I was too exhausted. So I suggested we catch the metro to the Notre Dame instead.
The Notre Dame has such a big reputation and I don't know if I've been to too many churches but just didn't find this one anything too spectacular. It was nice of course but I've seen better that you never hear about like the church at Prague Castle. By this stage I was not feeling the best and could feel movement in my sinuses so thought it best I go rest for the remainder of the day, fearing I could get sick again.
