2002 - Paris.......For what was the beginning of a bumper year, Mrs Makkers took Makkers to Paris for his birthday and not just for a romantic weekend away - oh no, but to see the lovely Kylie too on her 2002 'Fever' tour.  Unfortunately our pictures from the Kylie gig were not very good, but we had a good seat and an absolutely cracking time.

First Class on Eurostar to Paris, shared the Exec Lounge at Waterloo with Atomic Kitten, cheap hotel, crap bed but superb room with 'character', excellent Kylie gig, super evenings out and most of the sights - oh and it was France hottest few days of the year!

The pictures are a bit grainy'  [pre digital camera days for us]

Mrs Makkers in front of the  Eiffel Tower (Left, Makkers in front of Eiffel Tower (right).

Ok, so its a typical 'stand in front of thing for picture' but we also have exactly the same shot from  a previous visit to Paris 7 years earlier.

Looking back to where we posed for the picture above and the Jardins du Trocadero

   
   
Looking the other way up the Champs de mars.  
   

View from the very top of the Eiffel Tower

 
 
     
     
Notre-Dame and the beautiful Joan D'Arc - or so I am  assured!
     
 
     

Mrs Makkers in front of the Arc de Triomphe after our trecherous walk from Place de la Concorde.

Now this is the coffin(s) x 6 of Napoleon, some geezer who had his ass kicked by the British!!  This is located in the beautiful military building Hotel Des Invalides

And his lovers, apparently he didn't like her to wash and preffered the eau natural scent
And the ceiling that they now stare at.
     
  And finally the Central Obelisk - 3,300 years old and a gift from Egypt around 1833.  It is located at the Place de la Concorde which is around where they guillotined approximately 3,000 people during the French Revolution.
Unfortunately our pictures from the Kylie gig were not very good, but we had a good seat and an absolutely cracking time.
