Some of the shots of troops relaxing were taken literally around the corner from our hotel, while others are the result of our stroll across the street to the  Palais Garnier, the  Paris Opera House, which was built between 1861 and 1875.

There, members of the military engaged locals and tourists alike; little ones and adults posed proudly with the forces.
