    Eiffel tower at night

    September 7, 2019 in France ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    This morning, we had fresh almond croissants for breakfast and then decided to go visit one of Paris's many markets. There's a bylaw here that each of the 20 districts must have at least 2 fruit markets every week. The market had lots of cheese, meat, fresh fruit and more and we ended up by getting some meat and veggies. The food here is always fresh, freshly baked bread and fresh fruit so most of the locals go grocery shopping once a day so all of their food is fresh. In the afternoon, we took the metro to the Eiffel tower and had a picnic dinner. While we were leaving the metro two eight year old girls snuck into the metro and we heard one of them say "Hurry up! My mom's going to ground me!" Then, we went on a bateau mouche, an hour long boat tour of Paris along the Seine. We saw Notre dame, the Louvre and musée d'orsée and on the way back we got to see the Eiffel tower in the dark with all the lights on it. It was glowing and there were also sparkly silver lights that were moving around. It was really cool with all the lights. There were also mice running around that had probably been fed by tourists because they were so big.

    Ce matin, on a mangé des croissants d’amandes d’un patisserie. Après, on a visité un marché, il y a un règlement ici que chaque district dois avoir au moins 2 marchés de fruit chaque semaine. La marché avait beaucoup de viande, fromage et fruits. On a acheté un eu de viande et des légumes. Dans l’après midi, on a pris le metro au Tour Eiffel pour mangé un souper pique nique. Il y avait beaucoup de personnes qui vendait des petits tours Eiffel et des souvenirs. Chaque 10 pieds, il y avait quelqu’un qui vendait quelque chose. On a pris un bateau mouche, c’est un tour de Paris sur la Seine de une heure. Ona vue Notre dame, le Louvre et musée d’orsée. À la fin, quand c’était noire dehors, on a vue la tour Eiffel avec tous les lumières, ca brillait or et il y avait des lumières scintillants qui bougeait. C’était très belle. Il y avait aussi des petits souris qui courrait.
