In Part One of Day 7, Sheila and I wandered, literally, through the streets of Paris, intent on finding our way to the Eiffel Tower minus a working GPS on our phone, plus a gut feeling of the general direction.

From the small cover image for my fiction work, “Slumming in Paris, Part One” at the top left of the article, everyone knows we did get there, and actually we finally found it near noon. ;-)

Eiffel Tower, Street View, Blvd de la Tour-Maubourg and Rue Saint-Dominique

At the corner of Blvd de la Tour-Baubourg and Rue Saint-Dominique, we had our first true taste of feeling we were finally truly near.

And stopped to have a well-earned lunch. ;-)

Not at the nice restaurant at the corner here, le Recrutement Cafe, but at a tiny narrow pizza-pastry shop back a few shops on this same street.  There’s a cluster of small cafes and eateries here, many very inexpensive, so we knew we were getting close to Eiffel.

I’ve placed a link to the Google map for this spot so one can see where we were at this point.

And, by looking at the photo carefully, and the map, one can see that although the Eiffel Tower is clearly in sight, the street curves to the left, and is not a direct shot to the grounds of this incredible icon.

End of Sample



Though we’ve no pictures for Day 8, Sheila and I resumed our walking exploration of Paris on Day 9, with a trip to the Tuileries, with included unexpected and stunning views of the Eiffel Tower, from yet another angle.
