We left off with the sun setting…
This photo is pretty self-explanatory. I still think it’s hilarious.
We had a great view, as the darkness settled.
And the tower sparkled.
Then there were fireworks (feux d’artifice). I found it strange that they set the show to Broadway musical hits, including the grand finale set to ‘America’ from West Side Story, but our group of ex-pats certainly enjoyed it. They were beautiful:

And then it was finished, with only the lingering smoke to remind us that it had been at all.
As is my (mostly) week of blogging about the event (hence the two posts in one day). It was a great day with much laughter and joy – I have been enjoying reliving it here.
