After Monet we had some spare time before our booked trip up the Eiffel tower so we went to a shopping area but were not really inspired so we went and had lunch before heading to the tower.
Pre-buying tickets was such a good idea. The line went for miles to buy tickets but we only had to wait a little bit in our line, mostly because something seemed to be slowing the lift down. So we headed up to the top which unfortunately was in the clouds, so the view was not as good as it could have been. We went back down to the second platform level. Here we could see much further and had fun finding all the places we had been to visit. It is pretty exciting to be up the eiffel tower!
After this we went to visit some friends who have been in France as missionaries for quite some time. Their boys start off a bit older than Marc and there are 4 of them. It was really nice to step out of tourist mode for a couple of hours and be in a family home where the boys could play with someone else their own age. It was a lovely visit.
From there we went back to see Jean-louis and Marie-France for a nice dinner. It was nice to spend a dinner at home around the table rather than at a restaurant.
Tomorrow it is off to the catacombs. Enjoy the last day of 2010.
