|It was an early morning flight 06.50 from Manchester!|
|La Tour Eiffel!|
Inside the private entrance there is
a display to show where the lift is.
Here you can see it is at the top where
the red light is showing.
View up the lift shaft as
the lift starts up the tower.

|Mango granite...the combo was DIVINE!|
To finish with my tea I was given marshmallows
- which are not a favourite of mine - they were
made with rose water which was far
too strong for my taste - I only ate one -
Bitter Chocolate cubes on the left.
The petit fours were not to my taste either

flavours been normal but these were a bit too
experimental! I just tried each one but did not
want to eat the others :-(

outside on the Tower.

As I left I was given some
they are a bit squashed from the
journey but they were nice.
Next time I'll post my photos from the Tower and my day in Paris!
