We visited a few shops this morning, and then walked to the Eiffel Tower. There weren’t very long queues there at all, but it really wasn’t a good weather day, and we decided not go up it. There was work going on underneath with a tube going up into the middle like an enima. Very strange.
We took photos of course and kept walking, all the way back to the hotel which was a few kilometers. We stopped once for a grand kafe creme and it was delicious.
This was a war memorial that seemed a little strange. On top was a room about the size of a shipping container with a glass wall and it looked like people were sitting at tables like a restaurant.
Along one side of the memorial was a lot of graffiti. I thought against the naked woman with an autumn leaf hiding her groin, the modern graffiti was quite interesting.
Modern restaurant, classical sculpture and young peoples’ painting is a good mix to have at a war memorial. Most of the community gets to be represented.
We had tickets for this show and we had to enter between 10 and 10.30am. I thought it was going to be quiet civilised, but they were letting in large groups of people too to buy tickets. I think they were just limiting the depth of people in front of each painting to about 8!!!
