I promised you we will do some tourism in Paris this time, and we did: we went to see the Eiffel Tower, the symbol of the nation. It might be a quick ride since we just went there, took some pictures, and then rushed back home to take our things and catch our train, but we sure felt like tourists with the big groups around us, all speaking different languages!

I don’t know if you have ever seen the Eiffel Tower before, but it’s definitely something to add up to the list of places to visit at some point. Can you believe this was simply built to act as a radio antenna, and the people thought it was so ugly they were going to destroy it? It might be useless, but it sure isn’t ugly. The details of the work are really scary; I can’t even imagine what went through Mr. Eiffel’s head to put so much time and so much effort into coming up with a simple antenna! I’m sure the guy had a future vision, and he knew the effect his work will have on people nowadays so he decided to do it this way.

Have you ever tried to go under it? It’s so majestic; you cannot but get goose bumps when you’re passing by it, or even when you’re just sitting next to it staring at it.

And to make it even more magical, they added the LED lights that twinkle each hour for five minutes. No Christmas tree can beat this lighting 😛

We’re back at home now, finally sitting in bed. For some reason these weekends in Paris are always tiring; maybe because we spend most of the time jumping from one subway to the other, and running to catch the next one. I’m not sure if this is it, but I know that at the end I’m always glad to be back to my bed 🙂

Nevertheless, tiring or not, these weekends are very much enjoyable since we get see our friends (and my sister) and spend some times with them. Don’t you agree?

See you tomorrow!
