Everyone's moving slowly today - sick people, tired people. Dan and I took off on our own to see just a couple of things, intending a short day. Then we got caught up in taking pics and more pics so a couple hours turned into 6 hours!
|Grand Palais and the Pont Alexandre bridge (it leads to Invalides)|
|even the bridges are amazingly decorated|
|Invalides dome (Napoleon's tomb)|
|inside the dome|
|I love the dramatic ceilings in all these buildings - I got a kink in my neck from looking up so much|
|Napoleon's tomb was a surprise - so "plain"after all the ostentatious golds everywhere else; BUT, the tomb itself is giant for a man of such small stature; you can get a sense of scale by comparing the tomb to those people on the side.|
|Invalides garden is gorgeous|
Then - home to rest our weary feet..............
End of day 4
