... it so up we went the 284 steps, bit puffed by the top but so worth it, the view dips 360 degree of Paris, so beautiful. Took about a million photos of course! We decided from there to head back down to the river and do a cruise so we got on the Metro like the experts we now are and got down there easily. The cruise was good, we got great views of the landmarks along the river like the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame plus we got to sit down for an hour and have a beer (there was a ...

It had not rained. I had made up my step count (14000) and was ready to spend the early evening just reading, and finishing, my book. This final time of idleness was just lovely. I did momentarily question why I was sitting in my hotel room when Paris was outside, but then I felt ...
... that was on at 6pm. When we arrived the tour cost €12, so we thought we'd wander around ourselves. We walked through cobbled streets to the scare-coeur.
