We’ll, after what seemed like a trains, boats & automobiles situation, we finally made it to Paris!!! Checked into our charming little boutique hotel ( Madison Zen) & then hit the streets!!! First stop was Gare de Lyon, one of the major train stations in Paris, where we had a light lunch & then boarded the metro for the Arc de Triomphe!!! What a magnificent structure…we were told that the view of Paris, from the top , is not to be missed…yep, it was closed !!! We strolled down the Champs de Elysee, then took an UBER to the structure of all structures… The Eiffel Tower!!! It is beyond words! The sheer enormity takes your breath away. We rode all the way to the top, toasted with champagne & got to see a magnificent sunset ! We found a lovely little bistro right around the corner from Eiffel, Cafe Gustav…wine, dinner & we are ready to hopefully get some sleep !!!
