The European Diaries: Paname, Je t'aime.

990
La Tour Eiffel, la véritable icône de Paris.
As I said in this post, Paris has a special place in my heart and this trip only added to my sentiments for this amazing city.  Once again I really tried to pair down my photos, but with over 1,500 taken in Paris alone, it was hard folks and there will be more of the European Diaries this weekend with our final entry.  See after the jump for more pictures of La Ville-Lumière after the jump...
