Paris

One of our layovers was in Paris, France. We were able to check out the historic city for an entire day. This should be a pretty quick post - it is mostly just pictures.


The Eiffel Tower

The next several pictures are taken from the top of the Eiffel tower



Arc de Triomphe

You could go to the top of Arc de Triomphe too. :)
Notre Dame




Beautiful stained glass windows inside.

Several houseboats were in the river.
Charlemange
This bridge was especially peculiar as lovers had started a trend of putting locks on it symbolizing their relationship.
Underground mall. We barely glanced at it, but it was pretty neat.
Well, I suppose this will be my last post. I feel like I have sufficiently covered all of the details of my trip. Thank you so much for reading. It has been my pleasure writing them.

Of all the places I have been in the world, Paris is my favorite city. I went to school south of there in the Touraine. I loved going to museums, seeing the ancient churches.

That stained glass window is called the Rose window. The Cathedral of Notre Dame is exquisite in it's architecture and design.

It's still on my bucket list to go back and spend at least a few more days at the Louvre and then out to Versailles.

I think it's more magical at night when all the trees on the Champs Elyesee are filled with little lights. No wonder it's got a reputation for romance.

My favorite store is the Galleries Lafayette.

Glad you enjoyed The City of Love.

Wow, I have to say that it is so very refreshing to hear your thoughts. It is also so very wonderful to hear a young man speak with such compassion and dedication for the life that God has given him. Keep up the good work Elliot. Keep the Faith.
