A Day To Ourselves

Today, my sister, Mr. Howard, and I spent the day by ourselves. We began by climbing to the top of the Arc de Triumph, where we could see 360 degree views of the center of Paris. After lunch we went to the Conciergerie (pictured), where we were able to see Marie-Antoinette's cell (before she was taken off to be beheaded). Traveling from there, we walked to Notre-Dame (one of the most beautiful cathedrals in France). Finally we went to the Jardin du Luxembourg, spending about an hour hanging out in the garden, soaking in the beautiful ponds, standing in awe of the Luxembourg Palace, and even taking a look at the miniature Statue of Liberty.

We ended our day by ourselves with a delicious pizza dinner on the Champs-Elysees and ice cream cones at a little cart down the way.
