On May 9 we took a bus up to the Montmartre area of Paris. We ate lunch and walked around before heading back to our room. Montmartre is a large hill in the Right Bank district. On top of the hill is an amazing basilica. This are is also where Moulin Rouge is located as well as the red light district.

May 10 we took a bus down to the Eiffel Tower (third trip down to this area). We wanted to take the elevator to the top of the tower and it was a good day for this since the line was short. It was a little overcast but the views were still breathtaking. It is a little creepy riding the glass elevator up and seeing all the ground below you. We hiked back to our room from the tower area. On the way back we found a pet store where we had to go and see the puppies.

May 11 was a travel day. Took the several trains to get out to the airport, flew to London, took a bus from one airport to another in London then a shuttle to our hotel. It took us all day to get from Paris to London and to our hotel. Tomorrow we fly to Scotland!
