(This is an obligatory must see!) Paris is the City of Light so I figured I would go to the Eifel Tower at night and take some great pictures since the view would be spectacular. Yeah right! It was freezing that night and I neve made it to the top because I was a popsicle. Not a single one of my pictures of the Eifel Tower came out (bummer.) Lesson learned, so I'll pass along this tip, don't go when it's cold or windy!

But you know what the Eifel Tower looks like anyway, so I don't feel so bad. I know I saw it, I just don't have any proof! Since there's probably not much I can say about the Eifel Tower that you don't know, I won't bore you any longer other than to say that it is worth seeing. You will be suprised to discover that the Eifel Tower is not black but a very odd color istead!
