We walked from from the Arc de Triomphe to the Eiffel Tower and it was absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately I was in black and white mode and it was night time so a lot of my photos came out pretty dark, but don’t worry, I plan on doing that again many times. By the time we got closer to the Eiffel Tower Jonas informed me that on the hour it lights up and guess what? We got there just in time! It was very beautiful and lasted for a good five minutes, so if you get there late, it’s a-okay.
We continued walking when the show was over and ended up at Trocadéro to take more pictures of the Eiffel Tower and when we got there we found a group of men playing drums and singing. It was very rhythmic and tribal, and definitely was the best part of the night for me. I danced (of course), but Jonas was being silly and chose not to. There were so many people dancing and joining in on the beat by clapping and chanting with the performers. I really enjoyed myself.
Finally it was very late and we needed to catch the subway before they stopped running. We passed a Spanish man dancing with fire on the way to the subway stop, but we got there just as he was finishing, which is probably a good thing because we just barely caught one of the last metros and could easily have missed it.
