Hey today was a really great day finally being able to see the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre in real life! :)
Today was truly amazing...
We caught the train to the centre of Paris with excitement rushing throughout my brain, until finally we arrived. There it was towering way above our heads, touching the blue and sunny morning sky of France. The 'Eiffel Tower'. We all had a great time taking the elevator all the way to the top and seeing Paris to it's greatest and learning about the reasons of why it was built. Apparently the Eiffel Tower was built as a show case item but as it was so popular they decided to make it a attraction with almost 300 people working there each day and 6 1/2 million people visiting each year!
After lunch we also visited the Louvre to see the millions of famous and not so famous art works from the many different; times, cultures and places. One of the most popular artwork in the whole museum was the 'Mona Lisa' by Leonardo Divinci. By the time we got to the painting it was already being swarmed with many excited people. To me the painting wasn't as great as I expected, I imagined it to be larger and more colourful but still worth seeing!
