Waiting for the bus to take us to the Eiffel tower.
Due to heavy traffic it took over an hour to get to the Eiffel tower.
Waiting in line.
After over 4 hours we finally go to the front of the line!
Waiting for the elevator
No we did not walk I was feeling too lazy.
Up we go!
The isn't all the way up. We did buy tickets to go all the way up but we opted not to for two reasons. One Sarah's anxiety over heights and two there was a crazy line to go the rest of the way up.
Anxiety in full effect for Sarah
The two of us :-)The next morning we got up early to get to the Louvre. Meek isn't really a museum person but he went because I really wanted to. In fact I have wanted to come here since I was in high school.
Meek eager about going to the museum
We thought we would be early, oops so did everyone else.
Waiting in line, this line took only about an hour!
Sarah waiting in line to go into the Louvre.
We got our tickets, used the restrooms and set out to see a handful of specific pieces.
We started with the Venus de Milo, I uploaded this photo to show just how many people flocked to see her.
Later we went to see Vermeer's The Lacemaker. Not a large of a crowd here.
Later still we saw the Winged Victory of Samothrace (aka Nike of Samothrace).
She lost one of her hands, but it was over here.
I don't think I need to say what painting all of these people are waiting to see.
I went into the gift shop and this display reminded me of Egypt (only way over priced).
The inverted pyramid on the way out.
Our last stop before leaving Paris was this little import shop next to our hotel. He we bought, Bisquick, fluff, Kraft Mac n Cheese and Cinnamon Toast Crunch to take back to Milan with us!
