Day 6 - The Eiffel Tower Experience

After dinner, we had to hurry and use our day passes for the Eiffel Tower (they charge extra for nighttime experiences).

Here's some interior pictures of the Paris Hotel:

We got up about fifteen minutes before the Fountains of Bellagio were about to start, and instead of looking around, I staked out a spot for the show. This old lady was trying to get my viewing area, too. She told her husband to stand there to save her spot while she looked around (he was scared of heights and did not want to be up there), and got mad when she came back and he had moved a bit. He wanted desperately to go back down, but she wouldn’t let him until she saw the fountains.

It turns out Rachel had the right idea about the fountains – she stood on a telescope platform and got great pictures.

By the time we went down, it was pretty dark. I suppose the key is to go up as late as possible for the daytime price and stay until dark if you want to experience both (or the nighttime for the lesser price).

I took a bunch of pictures up there. It was pretty cool. I’d definitely recommend it.
