Trip to France January 26-29, 2001
|It's the Eiffel Tower! It really is a lot bigger than I expected, and I definitely think that going up to the top would be friggin' scary. They've got it all lit up for the millennium, and every hour little sparkle lights go off and make it shimmer. I was also surprised at the fact that it really is right in the middle of everything; I had thought that it would've been further out away from the center of town. After we had seen enough, we headed to the rendezvous point to meet up with Cecile and Kristen for dinner.|
|eMan managed to find us a "Bretagne" Creperie for dinner. That's the northern region of France and he and everybody else was from, and they do things a little differently from the rest of the country. We had wonderful crepes with ham and cheese in them, and then for dessert I had a crepe covered in hot pears and chocolate sauce. YUM. We washed it down with the traditional Bretange drink: cider. And that was it for Paris!|
The next morning we left Cecile's and headed for the train station, only to learn that we had missed our Eurostar train. Damn. (You mean these things run on time in Europe?) So we waited an hour for the next one and by noon we were pulling back into London. And since I slept the whole way home... I missed the damn tunnel again. *grin* Thanks for readin'!
