“We'll always have Paris.”

Today was a great day.  It was one of the only days that we got a later start (yay!!).  It ended up being a bit later than it was supposed to be due to some of our group being late (again).  We started by sightseeing and photo ops.

We then went to the Eiffel Tower.

Our trip was complete with a trip to top (yay!), but the bar was closed so we couldn't have a glass of champagne (boo!).  Acutally I guess that we were lucky to be able to go to the top as apparently it is not always open.

We were told to be on the bus by noon.  At noon we noticed that several people were not on the bus.  Slowly people started filtering on.  Hmmm....there's the couple that was left behind on our London tour, apparently they have not learned.  It is now 12:15 and Jelle is not happy.  He is now headed back to the Eiffel Tower to try and round people up.  At 12:30 we (finally) left 4 people short.  We are now 1/2 hour late for our tour of The Louvre, meaning that we just missed 1/2 hour of our tour.

The Louvre was amazing.  We saw the Mona Lisa (although from a ways away), the Venus De Milo, and Victory.  Plus, the lunch that we had there was amazaing - complete with wine :)

After The Louvre we ditched the group and headed out on our own for important business.  We needed to put our padlock on the "Love Lock Bridge" and throw they key into the Seine to signify our everlasting love.  OK I am a bit of a romantic.

After that we headed to Notre Dame.

We stopped at a bistro, had a glass of wine, and headed back to the hotel to get ready for a big night out at Le Moulin Rouge.
