Paris Scenes

We caught the tail end of a protest in the Place de Concorde last night. It ended at 5:00 and we didn’t get there till around 5:30, so the pictures below don’t show the full turnout. The most notable aspect was the lack of any overt anti-Americanism…the signs were all peace oriented as opposed to “bush=hitler” and things along those lines. “No war for oil” was about as extreme as it got. We were speaking English and got no dirty looks or comments, which was a nice surprise. Here’s a few shots from the protest:
