Paris, bus 42, stop: Eiffel Tower
arrived in Paris. am trying the public buses, starting with bus #42 from Madeleine. the bus route moves along Champs Elysees, then across the river Seine, and to Eiffel Tower.
Eiffel Tower came with 3 ridiculously long lines of waiting. so i just visited from ground. and then hopped on bus #82, which took me all across Montparnasse, through streets and streets, past the Hotel Invalides, and on to the Jardin Luxembourg. waiting there: birdsongs, walkways, a palace - and Eiffel Tower, from afar.
