La Tour Eiffel Passes

We did the obligatory stop at La Tour Eiffel. It was actually quite a wonderful view of the city. We only got to go up to level 2. They closed the top because of fog. *shrug*

On the Champ de Mars below La Tour Eiffel, there was a huge rally going on. I'm not 100% certain the point of the rally. It was definitely a bunch of French farmers, there was definitely some stuff that painted American food in a bad light, folks were firing off bottle-rockets droit and gauche, and one guy (jokingly?) warned me that it would probably be better if I didn't speak English as Hannah and I waded through the crowd. I took his advice.
