FRANCE | Thursday, 27 September 2012 | Views [289]

woke up to pouring rain in paris. so waited until the rain stopped before we went out for the ay. we went to the latin quarter for lunch and got a three course french meal. we got french onion soup, beef bourguignon and i got choc mousse- the others creme brulee. it was a great day to have aa hearty meal. after that we went into the notre dame cathedril. it was very pretty inside as there are so many stained glass windows and the rose windows were magnificient. i decided that this was a beautiful church to light a candle to remember grandad. after that we went to pierre hermes a traditional french macaroon shop to get some macaroons to take to bens grandad who was putting us up in londaon and then we trained to the hostel to get dressed for the eiffel tower at night. we got some wine and cheeses and took our picnic to the grass infront of the eiffel tower. we wore our berets and drunk our wine, enjoyed our cheeses and waited for the lights show to begin. 2 minutes into the lights show the rain came down so we ran for cover and hurried towards the eiffel tower. we went up the eiffel tower in the rain- so could only go to the second floor. it was cool to be up there at night, so pretty :)- my shoes were soaked through from the rain, so had very wet socks by the time we left to go home. after the eiffel tower we got a crepe each with nutella and walked to the train station for the very long journey home. we caught one train and went to the platform to get on another train only to find out that the train had been cancelled. so we got on another that took an extremely long time to get home. the next morning we got up and had to catch two trains to the bus station. it was very crowded so difficult to fit on with our packs. at one point we were so squished we couldnt move. goodbye paris, see you in two and a bit weeks
