Ecole Militaire


Sunset on the Ecole Militaire building located in front of the Champs de Mars where the Eiffel tower is. 
The statue is The Marechal Foch, a French soldier from world war I.

Very nice, Laurent...I'm putting up some photos from our 2007, 50th anniversary trip to Paris on the blog Paree (http://pareeandme.blogspot.com)...no big deal, but you might get a kick out of some of them...lots of "touristy" pics...

Beautiful photo Laurent, but isn't the statue of Marechal Joffre? The Foch statue stands in Place du Trocadéro.
