|Wow, today has been great. I was woken up in the morning (10:00, I needed sleep badly) and we started exploring the streets. Naturally, I was hungry, so we went to a local bakery and I bought a chocolate croissant. It was good, and it woke me up. Next, I went with everybody to the Notre Dame Cathedral. It was very nice inside, and I took a few videos and pictures. Some of the stained glass windows were 15 feet wide, and there were many paintings inside. Next, I decided (unfortunately) that I wanted to climb the 200 foot tall Notre Dame. Aunt Caroline reluctantly agreed; she's afraid of heights, and my grandparents probably could not climb up.) After waiting seemingly forever, we got in and started climbing. We arrived at a few rest points and made it up to approximately the halfway mark, where we were exhausted and took a few videos. We also saw the 10 foot bronze bell inside the Notre Dame. We decided to continue climbing and eventually made it to the top, but it was worth it. The view was very nice; I could see the Sacrosanct (a famous church) the hospital where Napoleon was buried, many other statues, and the Eiffel Tower too. The fact that there are no highrises in Paris helps. After, we were all hungry, so we decided to go to the bakery to buy some sandwiches on baguettes, with a few tangerines we bought from the market beside our apartment. The baguettes and tangerines were delicious; we are going back there again sometime during this trip, and the tangerines were better than the ones at home during Christmas (They were really good) After that, we explored the outside buildings and gardens of the vast Louvre. We stopped again to buy some ice cream (i had caramel) and continued on to the Concord. The concord is the oval that Tour de France contestants travel around shortly before they finish the race (they finish on the champs uylsses, where we will go some other day) Then, we came back to the hotel to rest, because we have walking 4 hours and needed a rest, badly (I will be very fit by the end of this) After, we had dinner at an italian restaurant called Bianco. I had an excellent thin crust ham and cheese pizza with some orange juice. Next, we wanted take some night shots in the Louvre, but it was not dark enough yet, so we went to a cafe and I ordered some extremely good hot chocolate. We went back to the Louvre to shoot some pictures, and they turned out very well. I made many pictures of the famous glass pyramid and then pictures near the concord (very close to the end of the Tour de France, it's the oval they go around several times before the straight finish.) I shot a few pictures of the eiffel tower and the arc de triomphe, and then we headed home.
