PARIS, France – Happy Wednesday back in the states!! And nobody is happier here today than our academic advisor Lisa Hehman because she is now engaged!
That's right, her boyfriend, Kevin, popped the question at the Eiffel Tower when we were on our bus tour this morning. And of course, she said yes so many congrats to them!!
Today has been quite an experience in Paris. There is so much to see and do and I feel like we were able to see a lot of what the city has to offer on our three hour bus tour with our tour guide Ann Marie. And many thanks to our bus driver, Charles, who had to navigate that bus around the city. Not an easy task.
As I said yesterday, we are staying in what we would consider downtown Paris. Today's tour took us around the city and we were able to see the Louvre, Notre Dame, City Hall, Parliament, the Arc de Triomphe, Versailles Palace, the Musee D'orsay, the Opera house, the Place de la Bastille, the Thinker sculpture, the Eiffel Tower.
There are close to 100 photos in today's gallery from the tour. We were able to get out and take pictures at the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower. Everything else was from the bus. It truly is amazing how much there is to see here in Paris.
The players really enjoyed the Eiffel Tower and were approached by several groups of people and kids to take pictures with them. It's obvious they are basketball players and the little kids love getting to stand next to the tall players.
It's off to pre-game meal and then it's back on the court for the fourth time in Europe tonight when CSU plays Tremblay. The game has been pushed up one hour to a 7:00 p.m. tipoff.
