Fresh from a boat trip on the Seine with the Ponte Alexander III behind us and the Champs-Élysées looming, we quite fancied a coffee stop.  The imposing Grand Palais looked as if it might harbour a café.  It has a rather grand restaurant, not the kind of place for a quick coffee at all!  Still it was good to get to peek inside.  The impressive quadriga that tops the building represents Harmony triumphing over Discord, which some how seems appropriate at the moment.

    Sounds like a great trip and certainly not your average coffee shop!

    Such a monumental building, the horses really do look like they are going to charge! #MySundayPhoto

    Such a gorgeous city, I’ve not been here before. I’d love to go back to see it all one day!
