Meredith called yesterday afternoon with a last minute cancellation for the wine class entitled The Great Everyday "Wine-Off" - a blind tasting of ten different wines at affordable prices. Whew, it gets confusing tasting and smelling so many different wines - especially since most of them I didn't recognize at all. But I always learn something and enjoy meeting new people.

The class finished late, and as I walked back to the Charles DeGaulle-Etoile metro station, I just had to stop and take a picture of the moon setting behind the Arc de Triomphe. You can also see the eternal flame on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier underneath the Arc as well as the Grande Arche de la Défense in the background.
Incidentally, the Grande Arche looks like this up close
