The Eiffel Tower
Thursday, June 18, 2015
From London, England to Paris, France
Mary and I took the Chunnel from St. Pancres Station in London to Gare du Nord in Paris. As we were going through security, my suit case had to be placed on the xray belt. The security guard jokingly asked me: “What do you have in that case, a dead body?” Apparently I have been collecting a little too much stuff on my trip. I hope they let me on the airplace on Satuday. 🙂
The Chunnel ride was a very smooth trip. It was safe and extremely efficient. We arrived in Paris by early afternoon. Our hotel is located two blocks from the Louvre. We walked over to see the “gigantic” museum and Mary took the above picture of the Eiffel Tower from the plaza.
We enjoyed dinner at a wonderful French cafe one block from our hotel. The fresh bread and well prepared meal was a lovely ending to our day.
I count it all joy,
