We went into the city the whole day yesterday. We started off with going on a bus tour that took us all around Paris. We stopped at Sacre Coeur and climbed up the stairs to see the church. After that we got back on the bus and headed back to the Eiffel Tower. From there we got on an hour long boat tour that showed us the beautiful city we were in! After that we met up with Sam, the girl we are staying with, and headed to dinner around 10:30pm. We hurried with the food so that when it hit 11 we could see the Eiffel Tower light up for 5 minutes!
Today, we woke up early to get in line to go up to the Eiffel tower! We got there around 8:35 and we were still very far back in the line! It didn’t last too long though, and when we got our tickets we went onto the elevator to go up. We stopped at the second floor to take some pictures but we continued on up to the very top of the tower. It was so beautiful and I had never realized how big Paris actually was before I went all the way up. It showed off all of the city and it was amazing. Later we’re going to the Louvre to see the Mona Lisa and other famous paintings!

Sacre Couer! The steps you see on the right are some of the steps we had to climb to get up to the cathedral! It was a lot of climbing!
