It does not happen very often that when I am on a city break I get the early morning 6 o’clock photographs in – I am just too much of a night owl…

This time around however, my friend and I beat the system: After dinner and a short visit at the Buddha Bar we decided to go to the bistro around the corner of our hotel for a night cap. This seemed sensitive, since we actually wanted to do stuff in Paris the next Sunday morning and we knew (from the night before) that the bistro would close at 1 o’clock in the morning and would force us to go home. However, when we arrived there just after midnight, they were already about to shut down and the friendly waiter cleaning up outside directed us down the road, where the bars are open later – “Open very late” he said…

Should I stay or should I go now? If I stay there will be trouble, if I go it will be double….

We stayed and found our new bar for the evening. What can I say. As morning arrived a lot quicker than anticipated, we decided to beat the crowds for once and make it to the Eiffel tower.

We were rewarded with a gorgeous sunrise over Paris, almost no tourists (hello? why are there ANY tourists out there at 6 o’clock in the morning?) and thus a plain view of the symbol of the city. Too bad creativity was a bit…. inhibited…
