yes, after three months of living in paris, in our LAST week here in the city, we finally made it to the top of the eiffel tower. took us long enough, right? we have tried to do it a couple of times but we kept putting it off, and i am glad we did. it was perfect for our last shebang here in the city. though the 72 degree weather was killer for the climb, yes we took the stairs, it made for a beautiful springtime, blue skies kind of view. i loved it. it is a great symbol of the city, and i am glad i had the chance to finally go all the way up.
you can take the stairs to the second floor, but you have to take the elevator if you want to go allll the way to the top. which today, we did.
rip roaring and ready for the stairs
we took lots of picture breaks so we didn't get too winded.
it is a little mind blowing how this tower has held up so well.
absolutely gorgeous springtime view
other side, still gorgeous
we live out past those buildings in the back (la defense)
everyone at the top.
shoes in all directions.
breaking the rules
oh you know, just hanging at the eiffel tower
gwen and the map kid strike again
the forbidden picture.
self timer? i think so.
remember how we were just at the top of that thing?
it was a grand adventure, drew got to live his dream of eating something on the eiffel tower (hot dog and fries), i got to live my dream of taking the stairs, and everybody else lived some dreams too probably. thank you mr. eiffel.
pastry du jour: millefeuille
tast rating: heavenly.
also, this morning i bought this beautiful mango at the ves market, and i ate it for lunch.
it was so delectable. so so so juicy and full of flavor.
and i just like this silly picture
oh yeah, p.s. someone threw a paper airplane off the tower today.
it was in the air for SO long and it went SO far.
