Do you know where I am? If you guessed on Champs-Élysées at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris then you are right! There are soooo many shops here that I could shop all day long and still not see them all. Here is a bit of information on the Arc de Triomphe and the traffic that “flows” around it: there are 12 streets that radiate around it and make a “star” pattern, which is why this area is called l‘étoile (the star). There are no lines on the street and the cars dart in and out, changing lanes like maniacs! This is the only location in all of Paris where accidents are split 50-50 no matter WHOSE FAULT it was… so if you are driving a cheap 5,000 euro car and you get rammed by a 150,000 euro Mercedes, you will pay HALF of their repair bill and they will pay half of yours!!! Cars entering the roundabout have the right of way. There is less traffic on the inner part of the circle but EVENTUALLY you have to exit and will need to work your way back OUT, which is pretty scary from what we witnessed from the backseat of our cab. DO NOT ATTEMPT to drive this circle while you are here!!! Just take pictures of it. ????Go shopping, stop for a coffee at one of the many cafés, and enjoy Paris! Bisou bisou! ??
