Paris VI

After our first night at the new hotel, we intented to climb the Eiffel Tower. There was again a pretty long queue... So we had a devilish plan :-) We went along the queue and took some pictures and slowly but surely we fused with the queue... We paid 3 Euro entrance fee and climbed up to the first and second platform. We didn't went up to the third one on 274m as it was quite foggy and the sight was limited. But anyway, we had a superb view over Paris!
Later on, we strolled around the neighborhood and found some small food markets and we really felt the french atmosphere!

As it was New Year's Eve, we bought some Champagne and went home to relax a bit, before we intended to go to the Champs-Elysées to watch the firework. But as we were again on the streets it rained cats and dogs. We decided to drink coffee somewhere, couldn't find one but a Chinese Restaurant! After a delicious dinner we went back to the hotel and took a bath with Champagne...

Besides: The firework was cancelled!
