When we finally arrived to Paris late the next day- I really loved the hotel we stayed in- it was so stereotypical French and it was just extremely nice. After a very nice dinner we were off to Paris's most unique attractions- The Eiffel Tower. It sort of is one of those things you see it once and that's enough however it is an iconic thing and heaps bigger than I expected. When we got back a few of us went for a walk to a lookout point which was really nice. The wall was full uphill which sucked but once there it was so worth it. You really got to see how big the city was too.
The next day we had a huge guided tour of the city. I don't know whether it was because we were at the end of the trip and I was so exhausted or because that night we went to bed late or because the whole tour was in Swedish but I just couldn't stay awake for it. All of us exchange kids pretty much fell asleep though. It didn't overlay matter though because after it we got to see it all by foot anyhow. What was cool on the bus tour though was this one round about where apparently there is a car accident every 30seconds- it was intense. Later when we went by foot three of us girls found ourselves talking a short car (jay walking) across that road- I think I nearly died. But we did quite a bit of walking here to a church and to the museum where the Mona Lisa is. We also visited the bridge where all the couples seal their love with padlocks. I did it with Isabella because she is my rotary oldie and we are besties. I also did it with all the girls I was with including my south Korean Julz. I then experienced trying my first Macaroon. They were very expensive and tasted okej however I don't understand how everyone goes crazy over them. It's actually cheaper climbing up the Eifel tower than eating one of these suckers.
The next morning I woke up very early to go visit the Catacombes de Paris. It was quite an early rise actually and than an extremely long wait because it is very popular spot. I couldn't believe it though. There were thousands of bones like rows upon rows of bones pilled up. For lunch we went to an Australian restaurant- it was the least aussie meal I've ever had. They didn't have beatrupe or tomato sauce or meat pies (which I crave like crazy). Oh and the Aboriginal flag was upside down and we told the workers and they said as I quote 'is that what that flag is, we were wondering.' That night we had a fancy dress code however I don't understand why because it was sort of the worst meal I had had since being on euro tour. After dinner however Taine, a boy from America and myself went to a church then after we got a little lost and found ourselves in the middle of nowhere. It ended up being alright though and we went to the Eifel tower again. This time we climbed up it- we walked up which took a long time- it was night time though and the view was spectacular. By the time we climbed up however the Eifel Tower had shut down so we got to see the light show and get to take the elevator down- which I was so relieved for. However we also missed the last train so getting back to the hotel was let us call it an adventure I hope I never have to repeat.
