We arrived in Paris and checked into our last hotel. It's Le Grand Leveque and is on Rue Cler (one of Mr. Steves' favourite spots in Paris). When we walked up to the front door, it smelled like rotten milk, not quite what I was going for. Later we figured out it's probably because of the cheese store next door (a place I won't be buying from).
Around suppertime, we left the hotel for a walk up to Montmarte.
We continued up the hill to see Sacre Coeur and to get an ice cream (but of course). The whole time the clouds kept getting darker and darker and we thought for sure we were going to get stuck in a downpour. Actually due to the 31 degrees and the humidity, I thought we were going to get stuck in a thunder storm. But by 11pm the skies were clear again.
We were down by the Seine at 11, just in time to see the Eiffel Tower do its twinkle thing from afar. It doesn't seem to matter how close or far away you are, it still looks awesome when it starts to twinkle all over. We watched a bunch of different boats floating down the river as well, which is something we're going to try to do on our last night.
