|Fun overexposed shot of the Arc.|
|We got a shot tour bus free!|
|Yes, it's a long way up and down.|
|That's just the head of one of those sculptures on the outside of the Arc.|
|The Arc is dedicated to the armies of France.|
|Justin's panoramic picture from his iPhone. Imagine the streets as a semi-circle.|
|The Eiffel Tower from the Arc.|
|It was breezy up there.|
|The gold dome is Les Invalides.|
|I thought all the trees lining this street were pretty.|
|The underside of the Arc de Triomphe. There are four flowers in the pattern of squares. I sat for a little bit.|
|Another shot of the underside.|
|The scale of things is incredible.|
|Justin found the lens cap we're always misplacing.|
After enjoying the view and the breezy wind we decided that the group of tour kids that had just joined the crowd at the top were going to make things a little unbearable and it was time for a snack. So we decided we'd commit to a short jaunt down the Avenue des Champs-Élysées. We went to a Pharmacy on the Avenue where I decided now was the time that I absolutely had to buy more bandages. So we bought some of the most expensive bandages I've ever bought in my life/the cheapest bandages in the store.
This same store also had a macaroon stand. So we decided to indulge in some.
|The green one is mint and the brown one is chocolate. The colors of these things are so vibrant!|
|Where we ate under the blue tent on the Champs-Élysées.|
|Justin's beer and my coffee.|
|The menu. Cause I can't help myself.|
|Justin writing away.|
|You can almost see it smiling at you.|
|Justin taking the following picture.|
|That tube is the escalator that goes all the up to the top.|
|View from the top. |
|We got two awesome views of the Eiffel Tower that day.|
|I'm writing as I enjoy my Monaco and Justin's enjoying his beer.|
Dinner that night was at a place around the corner from us and a little lackluster for me, but it was food and I didn't go to sleep hungry.
All in all not bad for the third day in a new city.
