On Thursday I visited the Eiffel Tower and went all the way to the summit! A few fun facts of the day: while queuing I met two young girls from North Carolina; a mom-and-daugther duo were the first to offer to take a picture of me in front of a monument (alas I have a photograph of myself in France!); and I met a garçon at the footsteps of the tower who then–much like in the movies–took me for a walk along la Seine and a nice conversation with a stranger.
The unexpected downside: it was very, very cold and windy. Obviously, the higher up the tower I was, the less “protection” against the wind but the view was so worth it. I tried visiting both restaurants at the tower: Eiffel Tower 58 and Jules Verne but they were both closed by the time I came down from the summit.
Check out a few pics of the Eiffel Tower by day (take on two different days):
Stay tuned for pictures of the Eiffel Tower at night as well as pictures of the views from the Eiffel Tower!
A bientôt !
