My last few days in France are here. Ever since my mother arrived, time has flown by. However, I am ready to go home. I miss Minnesota! I miss American food (although I will miss the bread here), I miss ICE WATER, I miss air conditioning and fans (which there seems to be a lack of here, and of course, I miss Paul (my boyfriend).
Here are some more photos of what my last few days have looked like here:
My mom and I at the Eiffel Tower
Close-Up of the Tower
Watching the sunset behind the Eiffel Tower was completely surreal. We were around the Eiffel Tower all day so we had to wait a while to see the Tower at night. There were plenty of entertainers around the Eiffel Tower to keep us busy until the sun set though.
There are no pictures that could possibly compare to the actual sight of this magnificent monument in person. But, I think my pictures are pretty good. At the top of every hour, there is a twinkling light show that lasts for 5 minutes.
The Champ de Mars in front of the Eiffel Tower. This is a view from the top of the tower.
The Arc de Triomphe
There was a grand palace in front of a giant pool where kids could rent mini sail boats to sail around the water.
