|The Eiffel Tower|
Our time in Paris has flown by. Today was our last day to enjoy this beautiful city and fortunately for us, the sun had come out in all its glory! We made the most of it and explored the rest of the Latin Quarter on foot. We found Paris's oldest church bell, Paris' oldest tree, and stopped by the Cluny garden which was unfortunately looking a little sad in the middle of winter. Our route took us to the Sorbonne, and we had fun trying to pick out the different schools on top of the rows of windows. What an impressive university!
We continued on to the imposing Pantheon, originally a church dedicated to St Genevieve, and now a mausoleum for notables such as Curie, Hugo, Braille and Voltaire. We stared at the central pendulum for a while before realising that we would be late for our lunch reservation at Le Jules Verne at the Eiffel Tower. We ran with vigour and thankfully were only 15 minutes late...very unlike me!
