 This view is looking down the Seine from the Eiffel Tower.

The curved building is the Australian Embassy. The area on this part of the Left Bank is known as Grenelle, in the 15th arrondissement (district). The bridge at this end of the Ile des Cygnes is the Pont de Bir-Hakeim [link] and the bridge at the far end is the Pont de Grenelle-Cadets de Saumur. At this end of the island is a dramatic equestrian statue of not Joan of Arc [link] and at the far end is the Statue de la Liberté Paris [link].

Katie. I miss Paris too. It's over 18 months since we were last there, which is amazing when you think that for us it's our "big smoke" and only two hours away.
