Adventure in Paris 2010

This is backdated post.

Both mommy and Shenny were excited that finally papa agreed to bring us to adventure in Paris for a few days(3D2N) during our trip to visit her grandmother in The Netherlands (Holland).

We took a fast train (bullet train) to Paris from Rotterdam.  The train took us directly to Paris in 2.5 hours only.   It was a smooth and comfortable train ride.  Shenny could do her drawings and light reading on the train too. 

Shenny pretended to read the newspaper while waiting for the train.  The newspaper was written in Dutch.

This is a cafeteria in the train.
Papa had booked us to stay in a hotel next to a metro station at Paris De Est.  That was for our convenience in travelling. 
The hotel which we stayed was Hotel Amiot.  We asked for a big bed but the receptionist was kind enough give us a big bed  plus an extra single bed (without extra charge).  So, all of us had ample spaces to stretch our legs and arms after a whole day of walking.
We also had free breakfast every morning in the hotel.  Therefore, we had no worry to ponder what to eat and where to buy after woke up.

This was the first time for both Shenny and mommy to explore Paris while papa was the second time.  Although Papa had visited Paris 10 years ago but he still could remember very well how to navigate us around.  According to him, Paris did not have much change. 

Both Shenny and mommy followed papa to explore Paris by taking their metro system.  The metro system in Paris was well-structured, though a bit complicated, but we could reach most of our destinations easily and in a very short period of time.  We could see all walks of life in the train too.  It was a great experience for us.

Shenny was waiting for the train.

These were some pictures we took while in Paris:

Eiffel Tower
We took an elevator to 2nd level of Eiffel Tower to view Paris city.

Nightview from Eiffel Tower

Nightview of Eiffel Tower
We climbed up thousands steps to the roof top of Notre-Dame to see BIG BELL.

We had a fantastic view of whole Paris at Notre Dame.
Arc de Triomphe
We climbed 284 steps to the roof top of the Arc de Triomphe.  Again, we had supert view of the whole Paris city.

We saw two rainbows appeared at each side of La Basillique du Sacre-Coeur (famous white church on a hill).  Some tourists includes us at top of Arc de Triomphe cheered happily when this happened.  We thought this was a miracle.

A gift from Eqype to France.  But Shenny thought this was a Giant Pencil.

Busy street at the Arc of Triomph at night.  The Avenue des Champs Elysees ( 名牌街)is at both sides of the Arc of Triomphe.

Passage Verdeau

Both Shenny and mommy wish that papa will bring us to visit Paris again because 3D2N trip is too short for us.
