Next Eiffel Towers. All of us are excited me included The last time I came , I had only two nights in Paris and we had arrived tired after the overnight on board the train from Lucern to Paris was a disaster. I never did go up the Eiffel Tower because of the queue but this time we were so much better prepared . We bought tickets on line.
But still there was a line... About half an hour later, we were up, but it rained while we were up there, so not a great sunset. And there werent any more tickets to the top of the tower and to top it all - the sun set late like at nearly at 9 pm. we were getting hungry, the food at the cafetaria was yucks .... even the quiche could not save it. I was determined to stay on for the night pictures...

the rest were tired and so decided to go back but YS and I stayed back for the night pictures. As the night grew darker and the city begin to light up - we understood why Paris was called - the city of lights. Just as we were about to leave, YS noticed that they were selling tickets to the top. We quickly bought the tickets and were so excited about going to the top. It had just stopped raining and as the lift went up, the glitter from the light of the eiffel towers against raindrops on the glass was a wonderful display of gold brilliance. This is one Paris moment that I will never forget,

But that night was spoiled by the long queue down and then because it was passed midnight, no subways and we decided to take a cab. The wait for the cab was so long because there was like the taxis in Paris disappeared. Another 45 mins wait and we finally got into a cab. Nice taxi driver who gave us  a little tour and explaination of the sights as we whizzed down rue grenelle , st germain and we were back at the apartment for just under 10 euros.

But I knew I had to come back with my husband this time - to experience the top of eiffel towers...
