The Arc de Triomphe (Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile) is one of the most famous monuments in Paris. It stands in the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle (originally named Place de l'Étoile), at the western end of the Champs-Élysées. There is a smaller arch, the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel, which stands west of the Louvre. The Arc de Triomphe (in English: "Triumphal Arch") honours those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary and the Napoleonic Wars, with the names of all French victories and generals inscribed on its inner and outer surfaces. Beneath its vault lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I. - Source: Wikipedia

Saunter along the Seine of an afternoon, and you'll likely run into them - convoys of helmeted humans, artificially elevated to Himalayan heights, scooting around in Euclidean, single-file lines. They travel within a thick cloud of English and stop traffic at every intersection. They seem to genuinely enjoy not walking.
