Journal Entry:
Met my friend Sof at Notre Dame. Spent the day (beautiful and sunny for once) visiting the Eiffel Tower, the Paris Sewers and having a late lunch. The tower was disappointing, had to wait in lines for each elevator (two each, up and down for a total of about two hours in line), and the view was hazy and smoggy. The Paris Sewer tour is a must miss attraction in Paris. I was expecting Victor Hugo esqu vaulted chambers of the old Paris sewer system. What we got was a smelly tour of the modern facilities... all in French. After lunch Sof headed off to meet her sisters and I went to the Internet cafe to get caught up.
