Paris

rain 21 °C

7/6 - Last day in Amsterdam
We spent most of the day recovering and watching the Wimbeldon final. After dinner we decided to play some pool and have a few.

7/7 Paris
Woke up earlier and jumped the train to Paris. Made it there about 3pm. My hotel is situated between the arc de triumph and the effiel tower. So I decided to walk to those two things.

7/8 Paris
It's cool and rainy. I read that the Louvre is closed on Tuesdays, I tried anyways and yes it is. Walked through the rain to Musee de Orsay. Explorered the impressionist paintings.

Left and headed to Jim Morrisons gave. There were all kinds of people looking for him. His grave is not exactly easy to find and it's very modest. I stumbled into a couple of so-cal coeds (Halley and Tracey) that needed help finding the grave. The good boyscout I am, I assisted them.

The three of us continued on to the Eiffel Tower. Even though I had just been there, I thought it was best to make sure the two of them made it there ok.

In our quest for food we came across the location of Diana's crash and memorial. Across the street we ate at a cafe, good times. The rains continue. I will attempt the Louvre again tomorrow and also Notre Dame.
