January 14

The venture to the top of the Eiffel Tower was so much fun. With the bright lights of the city, it seemed as though we could see for miles. Another exciting outing was a stroll down the Champs Elysées via the Arc de Triomphe and ending at the pyramid of the Louvre. It is cool to see so many people, both Parisians and foreigners, experiencing this lavish walk down a popular street in Paris.

I conquered my fear and went to the top of the Eiffel Tower, where I saw the skyline of Paris at nightfall. With the twinkling tower, night sky and street lights it was quite a site see. Also the group went on a tour of the Champs Elyssées and the Arc de Triomphe. We then went on a tour of the 18th-century gay district in Paris, which today is a very popular shopping area. On a side trip we went to the Catacombs and saw the underground graveyard and the wall of skulls. So far Paris is AWESOME!!!!!


This week we did so many great things! We went to see le Château de Versailles, and went to a fabulous Creperie. My favorite thing that happened this week was our impromptu trip to the Catacombes de Paris. After we left, we recognized Justin Kirk from the popular Showtime series Weeds, and after following him for a few minutes, we were lucky enough to take a picture. It was so great; I was enamored!
