The Obelisk of Luxor

This was the busiest that I saw the traffic in the centre of Paris, and that was because of traffic lights. In fact there were no jams and traffic was always moving freely. It made me think of the problems we have between Morecambe and Lancaster. The photo on the left is, of course, the Champs Elysees. It is a really long road and I have zoomed in. There are a lot of vehicles in the photo but I was looking for a photo with a lot of vehicles (and there is a lot of road).

The photo on the right shows the far end of the Champs Elysees. It is the Place de la Concorde and the Obelisk of Luxor is clearly visible. If you look closely you can also see it on the left.

The coach came from Morecambe and the roads were generally like the photo on the right with next to no vehicles on them. It would be interesting to get a Morecambe coach driver's view but I don't have a problem driving in France. The only trouble with road works and congestion is in England, particularly Morecambe to the motorway.

Happy snapping

P.S. I have removed registration numbers to protect the identity of vehicles - well that's what editors seem to do.
