We began our day with a trip to Napoleon's Tomb and the War Museum. The museum is fascinating, but your father does much better with war museums than I do. Because I am predominately a visual learner I find them overwhelming. But, I suppose that is the very point--the complexity and tragedy of war is overwhelming.
After treating ourselves to chocolat chaud in the gardens of the Rodin Museum we were off to Gustave Eiffel's tower. Our ticket took us to the highest level--what a view! Since we have been in Paris for a few weeks we were able to identify many of the landmarks. It really is hard to believe this amazing structure was built in 1889.
Eight hours after we headed out, and almost 20 000 steps on the Fitbit, we hopped on our Velib rental bikes and headed home. It was definitely a full day, but we have so much left to do in Paris and less than two weeks left to do it!
Living and Loving the City of Light. You are Always in My Prayers. Love Mom.
P.S. Check out the video. I am trying to conquer my fear of those glass floor challenges. Woot! Woot!
