RTW trip Paris Day 3

Today was a full day. This is what we did:

Cycled all over the city with Velib
Visited Belleville: I was told it was the Brooklyn of Paris. Went to the park to take a peek at the view of the city.
Cycled up to Arc de Triumphe– beautiful from afar, but the Champs Élysées felt like the Times Square of Paris.
Lunch along Saint Martin Canal
Cycled to view the Eiffel Tower at night
Met up with an old friend at Sunset Boulevard Bar


AirBNB: $47

Brunch: Fresh tomatoes with olive oil and vinegar: €0 as we paid for this the previous day. Chicken flavored rice was brought from home!

Velib bikes: €0 Fee was paid the previous day

Mid-afternoon snack: baguette, Camembert cheese, prosciutto, salami €3.74

2 Eiffel Tower keychains: €0.50

Dinner groceries and next day’s breakfast (yogurt, basil marinara sauce, pasta, 2 cokes, 2 beers): €7.08

2 beers each at bar: €16

Total costs: $81.22/2 = $40.61 USD per person

What I learned today: Try to go to the Eiffel Tower on the hour if you want to see the sparkly lights.
