Eiffel Tower Eiffel Tower Eiffel Tower

The storm is moving quickly
We have arrived in Paris. Our flight was late leaving Chicago and arrived about 11 a.m. in Paris. We took the train from the airport to central Paris. We had to to go through the sliding exit doors on the way out of the station. The doors are triggered by the train ticket. I was not moving quickly enough through and the door closed on my backpack. I was trapped. Sriracha and Kasie were laughing so hard that they nearly fell over. Pete was still on the ticket side so he slid his ticket through to free me. After we all made it through the gates we went above ground to figure out our bearings. We hiked to our hotel following the river Seine. The hotel is just a few blocks from the Eiffel tower. We can see the Eiffel Tower from the rooftop deck. We had lunch at a local bakery after we got settled in at the hotel. We walked to the Eiffel tower and took lots of pictures and then had a dinner a few blocks from the hotel. Sriacha was using her new camera today to take pictures at the tower.
