..............a day of highlights
"A walk about Paris will provide lessons in history, beauty, and in the point of Life.
" -Thomas Jefferson
Today we explored this beautiful, iconic, crazy, noisy and charming city. Walking almost 10 kms throughout the day, we caught a boat down the Seine, went into Notre Dame and Ethan even did some sketching of this amazing Church, we dodged the gypsies who tried very hard to get our money, went into the Louvre and saw the Mona Lisa, strolled leisurely thorough the Tuileries Gardens, and made our way on foot (and stroller) all the way to the Eiffel Tower which just excited us all, especially Ethan who could not believe that we were there. We aimed to go up the top but our 6pm arrival time meant we were queuing with the twilight tourists and after 1 hour of queuing and not moving far we convinced Ethan to leave and we plan on going back tomorrow...........we are all very tired and looking forward to a good night sleep in our cosy and quaint apartment. Paris will not doubt delight us again tomorrow......
