|Sylvie – Eiffel tower|
8:00 AM – Sylvie from Montreal (Canada) came to Paris for a short stay. We took advantage of this morning run to do a nice visit of Paris. On this Friday morning, the cold weather arrived to Paris. Having dressed our winter runners’ clothes, we ran along a buckle of 10 kilometers by way of the “esplanade of the Invalides”, the Tuileries, the Champs Elysées.
At the end of the tour, we passed by the “esplanade of the Palais de Chaillot”, one of the best viewpoints to contemplate the Eiffel Tower. After a small break to make a “photo-souvenir”, we joined the “Champ de Mars” by way of the Iéna bridge.
In the Champ de Mars, we were welcomed by very nice bears:

They will stay there until November 18th, 2012.
These 140 Buddy Bears represent the 140 countries recognized by United Nations. They wish to present the art of the tolerance and symbolize the idea of a world in peace in the future.
