Eiffel Tower

Neeley and I stopped by the Eiffel tower today.  On the grass in front two men making huge bubbles, much to the enjoyment of the children who were running around screaming and enjoying the bubbles much more than the towering steel building.

We stopped, took part in the festivities, and then continued on to trek up just over 600 stairs to the second level of the tower.  They had stopped people going to the third and top level due to congestion issues, so we will have to wait until our next visit in a couple weeks to try to make it to the actual top.

Jet Lag in Paris

Neeley and I arrived today in Paris yesterday.  Neeley was able to sleep longer on the plane ride, while I was able to only partake in a brief nap.  To combat the jet lag, we went out in the afternoon to stay awake and look for pictures. Things are quiet here due to many locals away on summer vacation, very odd to see Paris quiet. More tomorrow after we manage to stay awake past 8pm.
