My friend Joel met me at the airport right at the time and place he said he'd meet me. (That's what I call a great friend.) We then took the RER and Metro to The Golden Tulip in Porte de Saint-Cloud where Joel is staying. Paris has a wonderful public transportation system. The RATP consists of buses, the Metro (subway), and the RER (regional train).
Being the good friend that he is, Joel decided to call in to work and take the day off to show me around the city so I wouldn't get lost the rest of the trip. We walked along the Seine river to the Eiffel Tower where we saw some wonderful views of Paris.

I was very impressed with the Eiffel Tower. It's hard to imagine that this magnificent tower was built in 1887 before the use of computers. We then stopped for lunch where I had an omelet with frites (fries). From there we walked around some of the parks near the Louvre and had dinner in the food court at Carrousel du Louvre. We then took a bus back Porte de Saint-Cloud. Along the way we passed the Eiffel Tower all lit up with it's powerful beacon rotating across the city.
