Fresh from a boat trip on the Seine with the Ponte Alexander III behind us and the Champs-Élysées looming, we quite fancied a coffee stop. The imposing Grand Palais looked as if it might harbour a café. It has a rather grand restaurant, not the kind of place for a quick coffee at all! Still it was good to get to peek inside. The impressive quadriga that tops the building represents Harmony triumphing over Discord, which some how seems appropriate at the moment.
