Where I stayed
Hotel Parc du Trocadero
The area is quite charming, lots of side streets, boutiques, cafes, and restaraunts. We spent most of the afternoon and evening in the area of the Pl Trocadero and then walked through a festival down to the river and across to the Eifel Tower. En route to the tower we saw the wildest rollerblading action ... teens rollerblading frontwards and backwards down multiple flights of granite stairs! Think of quick mogul runs on rollerblades. Wild.
The Eiffel Tower is amazing both from a distance and near
We hope to actually go up the tower and other sites tomorrow while the working folks are at their jobs and the crowds are less. One downside is that the exchange rate is really, really bad. $US 100 only buys E60! C'est la vie.
Having said that, we love Paris!
