First Night in Paris

It's our first night in Paris. We successfully purchased a pair of one-week Paris Metro cards that enable us to ride any metro or bus in Paris for the week. We immediately used our newfound mobility to ride over to the Ecole Millitaire stop where we caught the number 69 bus, which took us past many of the city's most famous sites, including Napolean's Tomb, the Louvre, and Notre Dame.

We then took a metro back to the Eiffel Tower where we spent some time at its base.

Tonight was just a sight seeing jaunt and a chance to learn our way around a bit. We eventually made it back to our hotel and then went out to a nearby restaurant for a late dinner. Now, after calling our daughters back in Bellingham, we're off to bed. My meetings start tomorrow morning.

  1. Great video, Dave. This will likely be the only way I will be able to see Paris up close ;)
