So we hopped on the metro today to head down to the Louvre. It’s a massive museum of unprecedented levels. There was a factoid that you could spend 2 seconds looking every piece of art inside the museum(not counting special exhibits regularly held) and take 3 weeks straight to do it. That’s based on a 24 hour cycle and no sleep. Pretty crazy eh? Anyhow, snapped a few pics throughout the day. The highlight was the Police on rollerblades. I don’t think I’ve laughed that hard in a long time. Almost got us busted I think.
Just some quick shots from around town. This is a very interesting district to stay in. Very artistic, and very party hard… and there… there’s Pigalle… google it.
West Bank Tours, Scooter Tour.
Wow, this was absolutely the best thing we’ve done so far in Paris. Our guide, Cheryl, and myself went all over the place in Paris exploring by way of Vespa 125. We(I) decided it would be even more fun to have our own so we each rented a Vespa. Our guide drove in front of us to give us the direction we needed. I must say, unless you drive kind of crazy already… don’t attempt to drive in France/Italy in the big cities. You’ll just get runover or hit. You have to be fast, furious(see what I did there?) and in total control at all times. Having a scooter gives the ability to “go around” traffic when it gets congested. This is just how it’s done in Europe. Bikes/Scooters can go around cars/traffic or split lanes at lights to get in the front. It’s a bike riders dream…. I think I want to come back even more now.
Viator Skip the Line Eiffel Tower Tour
Definitely get a package that let’s you skip the line. OMG don’t even try to just show up and get a ticket. You’ll be there all day… Seriously. Found out alot of info about the Eiffel tower, how it was built, how long it took, Simply one of the most amazing structures in the world. I won’t spoil it for you if you read this, but I’ll say , definitely go! Well worth it.
