Today I went to the top of the Eiffel Tower. I walked there again from my apartment in the 1st arrondisement and brought a little picnic lunch that I ate under the tower before waiting in line two hours to get to the top.
While I was waiting in line, a couple was taking their wedding photos under and around the tower-- cute!!
This is looking straight up while in the elevator... the track curves like a rollercoaster. Makes for an interesting ascent.

NYC 5,489 km away!
I've been snapping lots of pictures of street art and signage that I see on my daily walks. I really love these:
