Tour Eiffel

No building better symbolizes Paris than the Tour Eiffel. Originally meant to be a temporary structure, the Eiffel Tower was built for the 1889 Worlds Fair. It stands 984 feet tall and was once the worlds tallest building until overtaken by New York's Empire State Building in the 1930's.
It was a beautiful day, perfect for our picnic lunch on the lawn in front of the tower.
Scaffolding up the center was being used for some sort of maintenance.
On Friday evening, we headed back to see the Eiffel at night and it didn't disappoint.
These past four days in Paris have been busy and wonderful. Tomorrow is another new adventure....on to Provence for a week. See you there......
