There she is again
I woke up today and went with Carl to a market which is open only on Wed and Sat mornings. We had breakfast then I headed out on my own in Paris.

I first made a stop at the Louvre to visit some of it's master pieces. First I saw Venus de Milo then Winged Victory two amazing sculptures. I got to see (and finally photo) more Crown Jewels. Then, of course; there was the Mona Lisa. I think the reason everyone complains that it is so small is because they don't let you get anywhere NEAR it haha. After a few hours I left for time's sake. See the photos for more that I saw (and there is more that I didn't upload).

I got back on the metro and headed over to the Eiffel Tower and got in line. This was the longest line I have to wait in so far here in Europe. It was about an hour and a half of waiting plus about 30 minutes of climbing.  It was worth it. It felt like I was in space looking down on Paris.

After this I headed back.

I had dinner with Carl and his friend and now here I am.

I am sorry this is short; but I needed to get it up tonight, and the French keyboard is killing me (time wise). Maybe I will type tomorrow's like I would on a normal keyboad and see if you can decipher it haha. See you tomorrow after Versailles (I think haha)
