Arriving to Paris on a City Lockdown

We arrived in Paris on the day the Charlie Hebdo shooting happened. The city is on a manhunt as they pursue the gunmen responsible for the terrorist-driven shooting that left 12 people dead. What a time to come to the world's most romantic city. For the next few days, we would experience Paris like never before: military and police everywhere on the streets, no tourist crowd, and the attractions almost all to ourselves.
