On The Menu: Le Tour de France With A Side Of Obelisk

Le Tour de France

Le Tour de France is happening right now in July 2015.

The event in 2013 was the 100th edition of the grueling bike race where riders pedal madly for 2,115 miles traveling throughout the entirety of France.

TV5Monde Etats Unis (USA), the French television cable channel here in the States, always airs the event.

Watching some of Le Tour de France on my television (is there really any other way?) – I was lucky to catch the last day of the race that takes place in Paris. Around and around they went, passing the l'Arc de Triomphe and the Place de la Concorde.

What enchanted me were the camera shots from high above, as they followed the riders around the Paris course. Each time they had aerial shots that would pass near the top of the obelisk.

There were views of the hieroglyphs that we, as mere mortals, never get to see because they are simply too high above us when we stand next to it on the ground. The deeply carved hieroglyphs were humming in delight as they showed off for our viewing pleasure.

I have captured here, from my television set, some views of the race in Paris with the hieroglyphs on the obelisk.

Hieroglyphs Have A Story

You'll notice in the second photo, the honey bee. Ancient Egyptians were thought to be beekeepers and possible pots of honey have been found in tombs from antiquity. Horus, the falcon, an Egyptian solar god can be seen in the carvings as well as spirals, feathers and offerings.

The view of the Arc de Triomphe from the obelisk at the Place de la Concorde in the first photo makes a fantastic view. 

What an exciting day in Paris.

If you get a chance to watch the race, I recommend it.
