Out and About
What is a trip to Paris without a visit and a picture of the Eiffel Tower! Here it is!
We learned about this large department store, Printemps, and the fact that it has a great view of the city from the top (thank you Jason L.!) We thought the outside was very impressive and enjoyed taking the journy to see the view.
Here is the view from the top of the Printemps. You can see the Pantheon in the distance. It's not the best picture, but it give you an idea of the city.
This is Pompidou Square. The Pompidou is a very unique building in its own right. It resembles a large hamster cage and contains a wonderful art museum. We had a small picnic outside and enjoyed all of the people as well as a spontaneous puppet show.
