Riding the TGV and beyond...
We took the TGV (a faster train) to Paris one long weekend. This train was seen from our window and is one of the older ones that has been "dressed up".
Kids waiting for their train. I wonder if they are off to music camp?
It's fun to watch the farmland go by. This is a sunflower field in the foreground.
Once we arrived, we ate a fabulous dinner just around the corner from our hotel. Unfortunately, they were closing the next day for the month of August (many businesses in France do this).
In the distance you could see the Eiffel Tower from our hotel room window. Once an hour on the hour it "sparkles" for about 5 mintues. This is my lame attempt to capture that.
This is what it looked like in video.
