Traveling to Paris

We stopped in Geneva, then caught a flight to Paris, this was a bit cheaper and faster than going by train.

Our Hotel was awesome, it was a 3 bed studio with kitchen (stove, microwave, fridge, dishwasher).  We had a great view of the city, there are lots of stores, bakerys and resturants right across the street.  Only down side was not having A/C but the wather is mild at night.  Hotel was Adiago Montmarte.

Eiffel Tower

Penny climbed all the way up to the 2nd observation deck by herself.  I took a photo Just as she got to the last step, then the automatic gate swung open and nailed her in the head and she started crying.  We enjoyed some yummy ice cream on the observation deck, Penny has no fear of heights, the stairs made me a bit uneasy, since you are out on the edge and the tower sways a bit in the wind.  Penny is pointing to where she climbed, and posing like the Eiffel tower.

Food

The croissants are from the local bakery near our hotel, the baguettes were also amazing, we ate these every morning.   We also stopped at Mosque de Paris for dinner, thanks for the recommendation Yannick!  With our Couscous Royal and Pastilla marocaine, we also enjoyed their special mint tea.
