The Eiffel Tower is surrounded by funny signs. Here it is the English translation that is funny.
I warned the kids not to get lost.
Here it is the apparent frankness of the sign.
It's the picture I like in this one.
I also like that the French word is plucked from English.
There was a giant line for the lift, but no line for the stairs.
The first floor.
The second floor.
Quite a view.
Medusa visits the Eiffel Tower.
The tower invites--demands, even--odd camera angles.
In the elevator. Everyone rode in reverential silence.
The champagne shop at the top of the tower.
I have never seen someone selling champagne look so miserable.
Was it the lack of buyers, or the howling wind?
This is looking up at the very point of the tower.
Eiffel and his daughter had a little apartment at the top of the tower where they hosted important guests...
...like Thomas Edison, shown here on the left.
Looking straight down at the foot of the tower.
You have probably never wondered, but just in case, this is what the toilet at the top of the Eiffel Tower looks like.
Waiting for the elevator after having purchased tchotchke from
The Society for Exploitation of the Eiffel Tower.
Back on the ground.
Feeding birds again.
Apres tour eclair.
Getting it all down.
