Wednesday is sightseeing day, it seems

I went out again yesterday to see the sights. I walked in a wide arc that took in the Arc de Triomphe:

and ended up at the Eiffel Tower:
Eiffel Tower

It took two hours to get to the Eiffel Tower, and when I got there, I found that the third floor was closed for the day, due to high winds. (And yes, it was indeed seriously windy yesterday.) So, I didn’t bother to go up (‘sides, after all that walking, I was tired!).

Besides the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower, I ran across the Lithuanian Embassy and the shop for The Fleuriste du Chocolat (the chocolate florist). There were some amazing bouquets in the window, which combined (real) flowers with flowers created with petals of wrapped candies. These must be seriously popular hostess gifts.
