Obviously we are up the Eiffel Tower now, slightly tipsy after lunch. This bridge would be Pont d'lena. High rise buildings can be seen in the distance and how good that they are kept at a distance.
I read somewhere a couple of years ago that a major road running alongside The Seine was closed down. I wonder if it was this one.
Montemarte in the distance.
I expect the green is part of the park Champ de Mars. I don't know how well you can see in the photos but there are small fences around the grassed areas with warnings to 'keep off the grass', or 'défense de marcher sur la pelouse'.
Boris Bikes, as they are known in London, named after the former London Mayor Boris Johnson who introduced them to London.
I think we were in the glass pyramid at The Louvre.
As in Brussels, the British handle border control back at Gare du Nord for those travelling by train to England. While we were there in plenty of time, with time we thought to have a look around and buy some duty free, it was an absolutely chaotic bunfight and our time was spent in queues and dealing with bothersome British bureaucrats. Why have a high speed train when so much time has to be spent dealing with these other aspects of travel? On a slow train, there may well be a border official on board, asking 'papers please'. Bye bye Paris. We loved visiting you.
