the next morning i got a fairly good sleep, and got my self ready to go gorge myself on breakfast. being in France, i suspected the breakfast to be a croissant, other bread, spreads, fruit, and other unknown french hotel "gourmet" wonders. as i entered the buffet, i spied an egg tray (the eggs were literally paper mache) and an empty tray next to it. to my horrible dismay, the tray had contained BACON. ALL OF IT GONE. WHY!? i was so upset. but luckily when i went back for seconds, the tray was overflowing with the beautiful, gorgeous, crispy right of the oven hotel bacon. it tasted so good, only because it was the first time having it in a long time.
we soon came into view of an arcing structure, as we made our way down the Av. des la Grande Armée.

we got free time, so my friends and i decided to try at the giant round-about but we soon found about that you cant cross, but there is an underground passage. we reached the top and then we were underneath. i mean, it isn't AS cool as the Eiffel Tower, but the architecture is amazing. after our sightseeing, we made our way down the famous street Champ de Elysée, and looked for food (of course we would). we had baguettes with the foreground of the Arc. it was so great. soon we clambered onto our bus, and made our way to the grand castle of Versailles.
most people on both buses just crashed on the bus ride there, and i was one of them. it was really the only time we could sleep at that moment. i had no idea that Versailles was so far outside Paris center. i got all the rest i needed. when we arrived, our group got off out in front of the golden gates of the old esteemed castle.
