Eiffel Tower Snow Globe

Bonjour mes amis! 2015 is starting out kind of slow, as we are still fighting the dastardly jet lag, even five days after our arrival. It’s ok to be slow, though, as Paris is still enjoying the final days of “les vacances”, and it seems that we are not the only ones staying inside in our slippers.

On my first day I did take a refreshing walk to the Eiffel Tower to check out the giant snow globe I had heard about. It was a bit underwhelming, actually, but I am wondering if it might have been more impressive at night. I kind of wanted to see some whirling snow or something more festive than just trees. If I do see it after dark  I will update you on the night version.

This doesn’t really capture the crowds that day. They were massive.

On my way back across the river I noticed Sacre -Coeur shining like a jewel in the sun.

So there you go- a snow globe souvenir from Paris.

I hope your new year has started out with more energy than mine has!
