  HOW HIGH THE SKY....

YOU DON'T HAVE TO CLIMB HERE, THAT REALLY WOULD BE ASKED TO MUCH BUT AN ELEVATOR WILL TAKE YOU TO THE TOP FLOOR OF THE : TOUR MAINE-MONTPARNASSE IN THE 15th Departement of Paris.

It is 210 metres in height
262 above sea level
the foundation is 70 metres in the ground
it weighs 120.000 tons
the surface of the windows is 39.000 square metres.
there are 56 floors, 7 elevators that will reach the summit in 40 sec. (keeop your hands on your stomach!!).

We went onto the roof where the wind played with my hair and clothes and made me shiver but itwas very worthwhile..

After that tea inside (topfloor) and cake and...some souvenirs in the shop up there.

The only thing that frightened me a little was feeling the movement of the building on that very windy day, I felt it shiver and shake.....
