Walking Paris

We hoofed it all over Paris today. First past the Louvre, long line to get in so we moved on, then down the Champs Elysee to the Arc de Triompe. There was a huge 20k run finishing at the Eiffel Tower when we were there adding to the hoards of people and creating a detour to get a better look, as if I needed to get closer to really see it. We thought about climbing the stairs but again the line was huge. At this point we took the long walk back to the hotel and had lunch at a restaurant close by. This evening more walking to Notre Dame as we toured through the cathedral. There was a service in progress despite the hundreds of tourist like us who were gazing at the inside of building. To finish the evening, you guessed it more walking until we found a restaurant with food to our liking. There are sore feet tonight. Tomorrow, probably the Louvre.
