Today was our day to be tourists.  You cannot go to Paris without seeing the Eiffel Tower, Champs Elysee, the Louvre, Notre Dame, etc.  We decided the best way to accomplish this was by buying a hop on hop off bus ticket.

We accomplished the mission seeing all of the important places, but unlike all of the other cities we visited where we walked from point to point, this time we rode a bus with loads of other tourists.  Ton appreciated the lack of steps, and it would have been a bit much to try to do everything on foot, but for Ron it felt a lot more sterile from the bus.

Paris is lovely, and though yesterday it looked like all hell had broke loose downtown, today you could not tell there had been a riot going on around here.  We got wrapped up looking at stuff, and forgot to eat lunch.  We did stop into a chocolate shop and had a nice chocolate sundae, and found a place for dinner later in the day.
