    Last Day in Paris
    Our last day in Paris found us eating petite dejeuner at a sidewalk cafe, just a 100 yards from the Arch de Triumph. We ventured to the long waiting lines to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower. Almost two hours after clearing security we were taking in the amazing view from the third observation deck.
    It is no stretch of the imagination that the Eiffel Tower is the most-visited paid monument in the world. Over 7 million visiters a year.
    The tower is 1,063 ft tall, making it a must see when visiting Paris.
    We next visited Notre Dame. Once again, long lines and it was very hot (mid 80s) under beautiful blue skies.
    A 10 minute walk and we are in the Metro, next destination, the Louvre. We saw the biggies and decided it was past time for a shower and some much needed rest.
    Tomorrow we begin our trek to Frankfurt.
