blake on the train to paris

on the 11th we made it to paris by train-barely. the train stopped and didn't move for about an hour or so, then moved a a few feet and stopped again. then they dumped the entire train and we had to transfer to another one! the multiple reasons?  "person accident", "technical difficulties", and/or "problems with the track".  we never got the full story, but we made it.

we won't talk about the mugging in paris the first night...we'll just post some pretty pictures. paris is absolutely gorgeous, especially at night. and it's just like new york-you can find something open regardless of what time of night it is.  for a great night view of the eiffel tower, we visited les champs elysees and went to the top of the arc de triumph. 

p.s. if ever in paris-do not stay at the hotel andre gill-on pain of death!

on the 12th we went back to champs elysees for brunch and a view of it during the day.  it was a beautiful day for the top of the eiffel tower. nice and sunny and warm. not too windy either so the whole thing didn't sway!  we ran into the hotel des invalies by accident while searching for the police station to report the previous days subway activities. 

spent two hours in the louvre seeing the mona lisa, aphrodite, and venus.  and then we were spent.
