We showered, napped, Facebooked, and rejuvenated for a couple hours in a quiet room all to ourselves, and then set out to tick a Big One off the sightseeing list!

|To me it seemed huge!|
|The tower at dusk|
|So delicious! So authentic!|
Here's a special treat for you! The grand finale: around 10pm the tower began to sparkle! It was so beautiful!
That sold us...we decided to bite the bullet and ride to the top of the tower, no matter how long we had to wait! While in line it began to rain...and then thunder...and then lightening! We were resolute. We paid the 11.80 EUR, crammed into the lift, and burst out onto the second floor, only to wander back into another line, cram into another lift, and burst out on the top floor!
|It was freezing!|
|The Seine by night|
|Demonstrating how to safely walk down the slick, wet stairs...not.|
