Day 55

Day 55 Paris
- Sunday 22nd August

Well, it was nearly all over today! We got off the bus at the Arc de Triomphe and thought, "How did all those people get over the the Arc de Triomphe?" (see third picture below)
Cars were screaming around the huge round- about. So off we went - Debbie was beside herself!! Cars bipping, swerving. We made it across and wondered why no-one else seemed to be taking the same risks. Then discovered the underground connecting tunnel!
(above) Here we are all smiles at the Eiffel Tower.



Dining on the Champs Elysees. Debbie did escape into a perfume shop for a moment - some moderate collateral credit card damage!




(above) How did they get over there?






Eiffel Tower at night. It's a long way down!
Decided to walk down the lower section.(above)

Eiffel Tower. Reminds me of some of my Meccano Set models when I was a kid. Except the tower has a few more nuts and bolts! As we approached the top in the lift, the structure (all of a sudden) felt a bit flimsy for some reason! What if it bent? Does it wobble? I didn't tell Debbie it was made in the late 1800s.










Notre Dame Cathedral
























Does this scene look familiar? Focus in on the awnings. Let me know if you know why it's recently famous.
Hint: it's a restaurant.





The Opera house.
