Well we 'd waited long enough, so we struck out before noon for la tour Eiffel! We have to pass through the street market on our way to the Metro, so we loaded up with wonderful sandwiches and Cokes and off we went. We found la tour a very busy place with lots and lots of tourists and school groups. We had a picnic lunch on the Champs de Mars and Eva and Davis played on the playground nearby. After taking a load of photos we walked across the bridge to the carrousel and had two rides. Nearby was another lovely playground and Eva and Davis made friends with some cute kids from London who are moving back to Paris in June. We stayed quite a while here chatting with their mother and then walked up the hill to the Cafe de l'Homme for a glass of wine and some glacé on the terrace with the marvelous view of la tour . After a long, crowded, warm, Metro ride home, we made a stop by the market for some groceries, and headed for home around six. It's 10:10 pm and the sun is just now setting. Bonsoir!
