The Tower

Well, we're back home...but our luggage isn't. We saw it in Chicago, and they're supposed to deliver it...well, a couple of hours ago.

The last touristy thing we did in Paris was to go up the Eiffel Tower. Here's what it looks like when you're waiting in line...

Here's a view of our hotel from the tower's second level. Those soccer fields were right in front of our window; the Hilton is the building directly to the left of them. You can see the Seine in the background.

It had gotten dark by the time we got to the top. Here's the Palais de Chaillot at night.

Afterwards, we headed with a colleague to the Latin Quarter to a small restaurant (bistro?) called Le Petit Vatel for a wonderful dinner to close out our Paris experience.

And to close it out completely, our luggage arrived as I was typing that last sentence.
