How incredibly lucky we were to spend more than two weeks in France. It was a fantastic first visit. I will be back. The last day in Paris we saw the Eiffel Tower from the ground (there was a strike), took a cruise on the Seine, did a little window shopping at the Printemps Department Store, and had a wine and snack on the rooftop Déli-Cieux Bar. And loved every single second of it! Despite the clouds, it was a delightful finish to our trip. Can’t wait to come back.
Pont de Bir-Hakeim – commemorating the battle of Bir-Hakeim fought by Free French forces against the German Afrika Korps in 1942. It is a two tiered bridge over the Seine: cars and pedestrians on the lower lever, the Paris Metro on the top.
Alexandre III Bridge.
The 1/10 model of the Statue of Liberty on the Seine near the Eiffel Tower. This is a replica of the original model that was used as the model to build the Stature of Liberty in New York.
