It wasn’t Paris, It was you

If one were to pick an icon that represents Paris, I believe that there will be no dispute if one picks the Eiffel Tower (La Tour Eiffel). Having been built in 1889, this 120-year old steel structure is still standing strong against the gusty wind.

La Tour Eiffel was built for the World Expo (Exposition Universelle). It was almost torn down in 1909 until it was proven worthwhile to be kept as a telecommunication tower.

The Tower has many faces from different angle of view. It is worthwhile to walk around the tower to see these views before climbing it to the viewing platforms.

When night falls, this massive brown-colour steel structure will turn into a glowing four-legged beast!

From a distance, it shows it's more graceful face again, but still glows in the dark.

When the clock hits 11 p.m., La Tour Eiffel will put up a light show for all its audience. It's quite spectacular. I think the feeling while watching it is beyond the description of words.
