Eiffel Tower

How can one not visit the Eiffel Tower ??

Looking up, way, way up !

Going up, way, way up !

Elevator weights; these sink as you go up; sort of odd system.

Base of the leg of the tower; pretty darn big.

Edison conferring with Eiffel soon after the tower was built.  This scene recreates that meeting.

Nice view of the plaza below.

Good view of Paris.  Circle is around my hotel in the Latin Quarter (in the 5th).  That's the Seine River running from lower left to upper right.

Good view west to the financial district.

View to the northwest - the Arch de Triumph is in the center of the picture.

The Tower in all its glory.

A bit further away.
