Behind me its the acutal Arc De Triomphe build many many years back.
The night view is way cooler and colder not to forget. Beautiful street lights once they are all lited up.
A little history of this place;
Saint Denis, a Christian martyr, the bishop of Paris and the patron saint of France, died around 250 on Montmartre.
Denis was executed by beheading on the highest hill near Paris (now Montmartre), which being the highest hill in the area was also likely to have been a druidic holy place. The martyrdom of Denis and his companions gave the name of Montmartre, in French literally the mountain of the martyr.
Then it was a long way walk back down hill, through old shops like petaling street cheap stuff....not really actuall after convertion...then to the bus and definatly slept there.
Thats all for central Paris and night shots.... beautiful isn't it. Tomorrow morning we'll be moving outta Paris into the outter-skirts of France.
take care c ya tomorrow.

Lets see what Wikipedia got to tell;
The Moulin Rouge is a symbol of French Culture as well as the Bohemian influence on Western Europe. The building has a rich history that is still being added to today. Over the past hundred years, the Moulin Rouge has remained a popular tourist destination for many visitors each year. Today the Moulin Rouge offers musical dance entertainment for adult visitors from around the world. Much of the romance from turn-of-the-century France is still present in the interior environment. The design and name of Paris's Moulin Rouge has often been imitated by other night clubs worldwide.
At every square there is at least two petrol units standing by, lot of rascals in this part of Paris.
We came here actually to drop half of our tour who wantted to see the theater while the rest of us wantted to roam Paris. So we had to wait here and our tour guide drop them off before we move on to the Lourve again. Earlier in the day we hadn't had a chance to walk about the lourve so now we going there.
