On a very cold yet beautiful Sunday, we all bundled ourselves in the car and thirty minutes later ended up here. Yes, Sunday we played at being tourists, and boy, there were huge amounts of people who were waiting to visit the Eiffel Tower. Luckily for us, we had bought and printed our tickets in advance, so no waiting
Before reaching the Tower we had to dodge the many joggers that were out in force despite the near freezing conditions. What a place to jog, personally I wouldn't like to, but I can see the attraction
After visiting the second floor, we managed to get the children to agree to go to the top, I never took any photos though, too cold. Back down on the second floor somehow we found ourselves in a tourist trap souvenir store, 2 bracelets, 1 pencil, 1 pen, 1 keyring, 1 giant chocolate euro and a packet of Eiffel tower shaped sweets later, we left, hopped in the car and came back home to a piping hot Chili Choc Carni (Nigella Lawson recipe) made by Alain, and it was delicious.
