Activities

The first day we will be tired from the flight and we did not get the best sleep on the plan so we are relaxing the first day. We might go swimming a little later and just hang out. Day 2 we are going to a art gallery it is called Muse Du Louvre and for 2 people it is $32. The 3rd day we will be going shopping at Lieu Commun, and we are bringing $100 to spend we may not spend all of it. Day 4 we are going to the Eiffel Tower and we are going to be lifted up the tower and for both me and Mario it is $28. On the 5th day we are going to this park thing for $14 and the name of it is Musse Rodin and since it takes 1 whole day to fly back we are leaving on the 8 of July so the 6th day we are relaxing and we will also go swimming. The over all price for the activities that we are doing cast us $149.

history and cultre

Pont Neuf is the oldest bridge in Paris.

The first clock to be installed in Paris is called the Clock Tower of Conciergerie.

There are apartment buildings and they go back to the 15th century to when they were built, you will be amazed to know that 7000 tons is the weight of the Eiffel Tower and when it is painted every 7 years it uses 50 tons of paint.

Even though it weighs a lot and you would think it never moved but in 1999 there was a storm with gusts of 242 kph and the tower swayed 13 cm.

Problems/Solutions

One of the problems that I will run into is the money. The people in Paris use euros and we use the american dollar, so I have to go to the bank and switch the money before I go on the trip or when I get there. I will probably trade before I go. The other problem I may run into is speaking the language. Most people speak both English and french there but what would happen if someone did not speak English. Well I would go and search how you say something and I would learn how to pronounce how to say what ever I am trying to say.

Conclusion/Reflection

I wanted to go to Paris because I have always wanted to go see it. I have been many places before and it has good sight seeing things and lots of art galleries and tours that you can take. It is just a great place with the sights, the food, the people and the shopping all around. In total the cost for the food and the things that we will do including flights, hotel and a few other things is $3950.
