Paris with pics




Category: My latest Europe trip | Posted: Thu Nov 17, 2005 12:10 pm

Ok, here are some pics.

Firstly, I had to take a photo of this house. The front is flat except for a sewing room stuck out the front. It has obviously been added on later.
The interesting thing is that it is about 1 foot from the road! It is actually built on the footpath. Too bad if you are in there sewing one day and a truck makes an over correction artound the corner!


Here is a typical suburban area just outside Paris.


In Paris itself. One thing I noticed that, on nearly every corner, there was a massage parlor. In Australia we have an abundance of pubs. In Paris its massage parlors.


The view of Paris from our motel room.


We went to the Eifell Tower at night, on the way to our restaurant.


And then we went back in the morning so we could climb it.


We went to the second level. It was a bit overcast that dy, so the pics did not come out the best.

And one cannot visit Paris and not have snails and frogs legs for dinner! Actually the snails were very nice, there wasn't enough of them though!

Was the Eiffel Tower as impressive as you imagined it Craig?

Yes, it is a very impressive structure. Very solid. There are shops on the second level where you can buy tourist stuff and food, etc.
We didn't go to the top as it was too overcast and we wouldn't have seen anything.
Also there were gendarmes everywhere! Security is very high in Paris.
