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.
