"But I Know About Art and Love, If Only Because I Long For It With Every Fiber of My Being"

-Toulouse-Lautrec, Moulin Rouge!

The next day was our last in Paris, so we did the most Parisian thing of all: see la Tour Eiffel.

We got off the metro at Trocadero to get the viewing platform experience, but half of it was blocked off for construction!  That meant that all the tourists that would have been spread out along the railing were all bunched together on one side.  We didn't spend too long up there.

We continued getting closer and closer to the base, stopping for the occasional pic or two.

We dodged in and out of tourists and the knick-knack sales guys that walk around trying to get you to buy cheap Eiffel Tower goods, and eventually ended up underneath the structure.  Taylor found the exact center and we switched places so I could get the photo.

The design was just as fascinating as it was the last time I saw it.  There are so many details and facets that you notice something new at every angle.  I especially love that curling arch design on the bottom edge of the sides.  Once we passed underneath, we kept walking to get the opposite view.
