Day 12-Second Day of Paris

We left our hotel this morning bright and early to go on a bus tour of Paris. We first saw the Arc of Triumph and then the Eiffel Tower where we got a group picture which is placed below. Next we stopped at the place of Napoleon's tomb. We didn't get to go inside to see it, but it's exciting regardless. Next we got free time around Notre Dame, and I ate a Nutella Banana Crepe! Also, the inside of Notre Dame was gorgeous and one of my favorites so far. 
After lunch we finally went to the Louvre! I walked with Miriam and Aubrey and we saw all the great pieces of work including the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo! Then went to the Opera house and sat on the steps listening to a man sing and play guitar which was very relaxing, and we had a good talk with our tour guide, Beate. We are all pretty bummed about not having her around for the rest of the trip.
And last but not least, we went to the Eiffel Tower and got to go all the way to the top! We had more crepes and saw it sparkle! It was a great ending to a great day!
