Eiffel Tower

Sunday was our trip to the great Paris icon. We we had tickets ahead of time and with a version of Fast Pass got to the almost top level very easily. I had forgotten that Mike has a fear of heights so this was a brave act on his part. Nice views of course and it is still an amazing engineering feat especially considering when it was built. The best time was having special Mochas together at the restaurant in the Tower catching up on kids, baseball and politics. Special mochas as we ordered two coffees and two chocolate croissants and got two coffees and two hot chocolates, being nice friendly chaps, we improvised.  The rest of the afternoon was spent walking and watching rugby at a pub before leaving for the train.
