3 Getting close to Paris
4 View from the balcony of our apartment on Rue de Medicis, across the street from Jardin du Luxembourg. This was pretty much the only direction in which could see anything else but trees.

20 Visiting the Eiffel tower on a Friday morning. The weather was cloudy and even rained close by, but eventually the sun came out.
21 Waiting to get on the elevator.
23 Champs de Mars and Tour Montparnasse in the background, with rain clouds approaching. The tower has a large "Paris 2024 Olympics" symbol, and at the time of taking this picture Paris had not yet been awarded the 24 olympics.

30 Elsa at the very top of the Eiffel tower
33 Eiffel tower from the Trocadero.

41 Visiting Musee d'Orsay on a rainy day. It was the first Sunday of July, so entrance was free and the lines were long.
