Eiffel Tower

Everyone knows the Eiffel Tower. It’s like the Empire Sate building is to New York, Golden Gate bridge is to San Francisco.

I’ve never been to the top of the Empire State building. The only reason why Victor and I went to Top of the Rock is because my friends Romina and Damien from Buenos Aires were visiting. Magali joined us on our venture to the Eiffel Tower – it was her first time there too. A lot of times native city people don’t experience their hometown as a tourist.

Magali, Victor and I at the top of the Eiffel Tower.

The weather cleared up nicely. It was raining on and off for a few days.

The views are nice. It took over an hour to get to the top.

The structure.

The tower is named after the engineer Alexandre Gustave Eiffel whose company designed and built it.

 There are people who keep pet bunnies around the area. If you take a picture or want to pet them you pay a euro or two. We didn’t realize that and snapped a few pics of this cute bunny.

Au revoir Eiffel.

  1. Those are very interesting photos. I read somewhere that the tower was built as an archway to the 1889 world’s fair and was designed to be easily dismantled, which is what was supposed to happen in 1909.
