First Day in Paris
Alright, I will try and get all five days of our Paris excursion up today, so promises though. I didn't end up taking my laptop with me, so I had to wait to upload until I got back, which was about 11 p.m last night. The day we left, we went on the TGV which is the high speed rail in France, which was very fast. The first and second picture from the bottom are of the train station, with a professor in there and of a view of the mountains we passed on the way. First place we went to that you see here is the Cimitere de Pere Lachaise. This was absolutely massive, had the graves of many famous writers and painters and even Jim Morrison. I actually wasn't there for very long, as food was weighing heavily on the brain. After eating we went to the Eiffel Tower, which we ended up staying at until night, which is when we went up. Amazing view, needless to say.
