The Eiffel Tower at night (after trying duck at a French restaurant)
Interspersed were many trips to bakeries to get French pastries. YUM
|I ate lots of these|
|Still couldn't find Quasimodo...|
|Cause arms aren't that artistic anyway|
|Saw it. Yup.|
|The apartments of Napoleon III|
The Champs Elysees

see everything you will never be able to afford in your life
The Arc de Triomphe

All of these were followed by dinner at a lovely, fancy french restaurant. We dressed up, but one of my friend's has the picture and their internet hasn't been working so I'll get back to you with pictures of that.
Climbed Eiffel Tower (only to 2nd level- top closed because it was too dangerous with the ice and frost)
|Freeeeeeeeezing. But worth it|
Extensive travel to get home- never a wonderful thing, but a necessary evil.
