Cemeteries, Morrison, Princess Di and the Eiffel Tower

Our last full day in Paris was spent going to the Pere Lachaise Cemetery to see James Morrison's grave. You all know who Jim Morrison is don't you? Sure you do.

We also found Chopin's grave

After that we had lunch and returned to the Opera area of Paris and visited the Ritz to see where Princess Di spent her last night...morbid we seem to be.

You'll probably recognize these doors. They are the back doors that Lady Di left from that night in order to avoid the media. We all know how that turned out.

That night we had dinner at an Italian (yeah not French) restaurant on Avenue des Champs-Élysées .

After we went to see the Eiffel Tower lit up. Once an hour they "sparkle" the lights like a Christmas tree. I caught it on video
