Eiffel Tower

sunny 37 °C

With much excitement from Kenzie we took an early metro ride to the Eiffell tower, we got there 20 minutes before opening to avoid the queues, which turned out to be a great idea. We waited the 20 minutes out and then The family minus me went on up. I decided not to waste our money on my entry fee as last time I was here I went up and straight back down in 1 minute. I was happy to people watch from the bottom for a couple of hours. The presence of armed soldiers at every major tourist sight takes a little getting used to but at the tower I felt very safe to relax. By this time the presence of all the illegal sellers was really grating on Briana and today was the only day I decided to buy from them. We haggled over 2 souviner eiffel towers and key rings. The girls were impressed with the trip up the tower and how far they could see.
