Okay... The Décathlon store is the one located near Place de la Madeleine, just near the Place de la Concorde where the stand with officials is located during the Bastille Day parade. The video was taken just after the Legion detachment went past the stand and turned left heading to La Madeleine church via rue Royale and then made a right. Anybody interested can check.

I am willing to check La Madeleine, any time. Place de la Concorde is downhill, where we split (regulars, not la Légion). We go thru full block and do not divide.

Nice video, backstage with the Legion during the 2019 Bastille Day parade. At 2 mn, interesting to see the colonel sharing a bottle of wine with his staff before the ceremony. Only in the Legion... Vive Le pinard ! :D

Yes, a nice touch. I do remember getting a glass of port in my OC´s office.

I dunno, I've been several times lately and my passport hasn't picked up any weird stamps. My French friends all concur that – to the best of their knowledge – they still reside on French territory. But maybe some website with an aversion to brown people has the inside track. Best avoid Paris I guess, to be on the safe side.

All cities have their tougher areas/ghettos. We could get DEEP into what causes the marginalsiation of immigrant minorities on foot of failed government policies in the wake of collapsed colonial regimes. But suffice to say Paris is a unique and inspirational city and you should definitely come visit 👍

Every city, town and village have their elite and the so-called, ‘low life’...

The vandalism done on the Arc de Triomphe during the yellow fluo vests campagne was no more than a “we’ve had enough of your elitist bull and fuque the symbols.”
Symbols and medals mean naff fanny Adams when you and your family are hungry.
To justify my rants, I refer you to the day the Bastille was taken.

I would accept your argumentation Petit Caporal, if the infamous “yellow vests” protesters were really suffering from hunger and/or oppression. In 1789, the prison of la Bastille (almost empty btw when it was stormed by the people of Paris) was a symbol of the absolute Monarchy oppression, where you could be jailed without any trial, just because you had displeased the King for some reason or another. Nothing comparable with what happened last year.
