Ferris Wheel This is one of my favorite pictures of the Le Grande Roue (Ferris Wheel) from outside the Jardin des Tuileries. I spent a lot of time taking pictures in this area, but ironically, have never been inside. But I plan to remedy this on my 2006 trip as I'm sure my nephew will want to ride.
 Joan of Arc Statue eanne d'Arc now directs traffic in the Place des Pyramides in Paris. I checked, and although she is the patron saint of many causes, she is not the patron saint of terrified passengers in Paris taxi cabs or tour bus operators (many of the tour bus companies are located nearby). Check out this eerie story about the girl who modeled for this sculpture created by Daniel Frèmiet in 1889.
