Yesterday's post left you at the top of the Arc de Triomphe... but didn't leave you hanging ;-)
We met up with Daddy and Miss C almost exactly on time on the steps of Napoleon's Tomb.
here's the view up from the line...
We finally had our tickets and needed to then wait for the first elevator...
and watch out for the pickpockets!
Big G was pretty excited!
Then we had to wait another 45 minutes to get on the elevator to go to the top!
Everyone went a little stir-crazy ;-)
The elevator was JAMMED!
You can barely see Q-Man's head between all the elbows and shoulders.
After goofing around on the super crowded top level for a while and watching the city lights come on below us... which was really lovely... we headed back down to the bottom. The crowds going down were much smaller, thankfully and understandably.
And then it was time for ice cream!
We then walked 20+ minutes to the Métro and finally got home at about 11 p.m. Everyone was happy and exhausted. No separations, no vomiting, no picking of pockets. It was a success.
