Shortly before dinner time we heard a helicopter flying around central Paris. The rotor noise was also mixed with police sirens. We had never seen a helicopter in this airspace before so it caught our attention.....and it kept circling the Montparnesse Tower. Since there had been threats against Paris by ISIS and we have noted an increase in security patrols in the tourist areas, we thought there might have been some terrorist activity. Turns out it was just an every day jewelry store robber....Cartiers.....on the Champs.....by a couple of bumbling burglars.
The Champs is full of people going to the Christmas Market and traffic is bumper to bumper with looky loos at the lights and you think this might be a good time to rob the store????
