"I ought to be jealous of the tower. She is more famous than I am."
Gustave Eiffel (1832-1923)
I hope none of you is getting tired of Paris because I enjoy revisiting it through my photos. Today I was in the mood for the ideal Paris cliché, the Eiffel Tower. From the Esplanade du Trocadéro nothing blocks the view of the tower. When you walk up the steps from the metro and you pass the corner, the tower is there in all its glory. I went there all by myself in the morning on my second day and I admit that my heart started beating faster when I saw it. I'm sure I let out at least one sigh.
Besides me there were only a few tourists and policemen. I had seen the tower from a distance the day before but on that morning, up close, it looked so real and it felt as if it was saying: "Bienvenue à Paris! ... By the way, what took you so long?"
I hope you enjoyed a wonderful weekend and that the new week is starting off well!
