Eiffel Tower, got there way too late. Line ups all over the place… Passed by a bear art exhibit, United Buddy Bears. Since 2002, the project has been in 25 different exhibits on 5 continents. Now they are lined up between the Eiffel Tower and École Militairé. Looking at the lines we decided that I’d come back at a later date and an earlier time.

Heading over to the Palais de Challiot, quickly grabbed a crepe at a cart, banana + nutella, mmmm… Took a bunch of pictures, as per usual and kept on walking.

Arc de Triomphe, in the middle of a crazy 6 lane round-about. RUN! No… there’s an underground passage to buy tickets and get to the arc. Although, if there was a break in traffic I wouldn’t put it past the Parisians to run all the way across. All crosswalks and lights you basically just walk whenever you can walk. It’s like downtown Toronto, I guess. haha… Spiral staircases going up and down, lots of pictures, whee.

Walk down Ave des Champs-Élysées, nice stuff, expensive stuff. Stopped by some random shop for an Espresso, ehh, I may need to acquire that taste first. Kept walking through some department stores and ended up at the best store. UNIQLO! And did some damage there, as always. Started getting dark, but since we were close, we walked over to the Louvre for some night shots.

Passed through the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel and spent a good amount of time just taking pictures around the pyramid at Musée du Louvre.

Tmr.. back to the Eiffel Tower and Versailles?
