We tried to take the subway to the Eiffel Tower, but about 3 stops before the tower the subway workers went on strike and the train stopped, so we had to walk the rest of the way. We saw some cool buildings and some glimpses of the french life.
As we walked we would see the tower over the buildings and just head in that general direction.
Pat was super exicted about the trip.
This is one of Alison's favorite pictures. She says she is going to frame it. I say of course it's awesome...
After our excursion we headed back to the airport to board a plane for a six hour flight into West Africa. We arrived in Mali and went straight to the guest house and got our last night of sleep in the air conditioning. The next morning we loaded up the Land Crusiers and set out on the six hour drive to Kankan.
