Last day in Paris! Louvre, Eiffel Tower

Our last full day in Paris! We did some of the biggies. We took the metro to the Louvre.IMG_2430We waited in a bit of a line to get into the Louvre, but it was in an underground mall, so it was tolerable. Then we just decided to head straight for the Mona Lisa and see that section of the Louvre. The building itself is massive and full of amazing art at every turn. The Mona Lisa was definitely a gathering place.

There was some rain in the sky, so we had our umbrellas we had borrowed from the Flanigans. We headed over to the Eiffel Tower.IMG_2450 IMG_2466 IMG_2465 IMG_2460 IMG_2454 IMG_2452 IMG_2451IMG_0525 IMG_0521DSC_7302 DSC_7336 DSC_7328 DSC_7307

Robin, Maren, Brandon, and Erik walked up to the first level of the Eiffel Tower. It started to really rain, so Nicole, Camille and I sat underneath and found some souvenirs.
