It was an awesome experience climbing the Eifel Tower but also a bit exaughsting. We had to climb 674 steps. But the view was really worthy. There was an exhibition on the first floor. I learnd something about Gustave Eiffel, the architect of the Eifel Tower and Philippe Petit. P. Petit is a French tightrope walker. In 1989 he walked on a rope – 700 meters high, unsecured, from the Trocadéro to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower. That‘s incredible, isn‘t it?
Later we had a typical french lunch in a bakery. At first it seemed somehow strange but everything was in fact very delicious there.

On Saturday Charlotte had a competition in Judo. We stayed there from 9 a.m. until 15 p.m. Then, back at home we played a lot of board games. That‘s really cool because my family & me play the same games. 🙂
In the evening we ate pizza and watched a TV-Show about an organization called “Les Restos du Coeur”. Every year famous singers from France preform a concert for free and distribute food and clothing to those in need. This year is their 35th anniversary. It was amazing to see how many singers and actors were there and to listen to their music. And that is for free! There was such a big audience, so there was no free room left.
