Of course one of my first destinations in Paris would be the sewers. one thing humans need is water, drinking water. We also need a way of disposing water. Without a good system for the transport of water, cities could not exist, let alone thrive. Along the tour, a marble bust of Eugene Belgrand honors his contribution as the engineer who i
n 1850 designed the sewer network that services the city of Paris today.
Prior to descending into the tunnels beneath Paris, I caught my first glimpse of the Tour Eiffel. Pretty spectacular … But me attention was drawn to the rather modern street lights. When Luisa joins me in a couple of weeks we will climb the Tour Eiffel together.
After touring the sewers I strolled along the Seine, sketching the view of the Right Bank from the Left Bank.
One of my favorite things about France is that it stays light so late into the evening.
