Eiffel Tower view from Place du Trocadéro

The Place du Trocadéro (Metro Stop: Trocadéro) is where one can get a full view of the Eiffel Tower and its environs from afar. I realize that most of the tour buses stop here, hence the place is packed with so many people who hang around and take snaps in the short (or long) time that their tour directors allow them to.

The sun was almost setting and the harsh shadows didn’t make for good pictures. We sauntered and tried taking pictures for a good hour or so, watched the breakdancers perform and took more pictures.

It was time for dinner and we found ourselves at Schwartz’s, a diner / deli that looked a lot less intimidating than the other restaurants in the area.
That ends our first full day in Paris.

    @Guy: Thanks so much! I didn’t realise you were still reading this 😉 Are you in HK? Or the US?

    @Ms T: Yes, we were able to catch the breakdancing “show” 🙂

    @Angela: YES YOU SHOULD! Haha I wanted to be productive so I’m trying to write, even if I’m a few months late.

    I only got to see the Eiffel tower through this place. Unfortunately, we had no time to get closer, but I was so thrilled to see the Eiffel with my own eyes that I didn’t mind. 🙂

    Oh, and we saw the break dancers too. 🙂

    @Tina at least you got to see it, even if you were pressed for time! 🙂 A whirlwind trip will do for now, until you can buy more time 🙂 I would do the same thing.
