thought i'd share the first two day's impressions and a picture or two
the eiffel tower has two elevators, one is broke and i feel so sorry for the workers who have to climb up that scaffolding.
we were told that the lights on the tower 'sparkle' hourly after dark. i plan on getting a video of that.
we bumped into a couple from gainesville GA this morning. funny- travel halfway around the world to bump into somebody from home :) the southern accent is easy to hear here...
we are in the 7th district really close to Mr Effiel's tower and the river. it's a nice little neighborhood.
and yes, i've laid into a crossiant or two *lip smack*
i'm not a picky eater, but i know what i like and pretty much stick to that. i quickly had to get past that. i do try something before i say i don't like it.
this was my lunch today at cafe marshe. i ordered a ceaser salad. not exactly what i had in mind....they call it Tandoori chicken ceaser.
does any one know what tandoori is??
no kidding. it doesn't get dark til almost 10:30. if you look at the bigger picture, you can still see the sun shine on the building at the end of the rue.
trippy! and it makes it that more difficult to get over the jet lag.
so, that's just a small sampling of our two days here so far.
we haven't done anything 'touristy' yet besides walk to the Eiffel tower this morning.
you asked for lots of pictures, and i plan on doing just that.
it hasn't quite sunk in that i'm here yet....
