And I present to you the leaning Tower of Eiffel. And Robin and me for good measure.
Finally, we meet.
We agreed to meet up at the carousel by the Eiffel Tower that afternoon. Did you know there are TWO carousels? May have lost a couple hours there (and I may have flung myself across a busy street to get Robin and Gienna, who were getting in a cab to go back to the hotel). The art on the carousel reminds me of things that are wrong, like candy cigarettes and a Smurf figurine holding a mug of beer.
Late that afternoon, we had a lovely picnic beneath the tower. As it happens, there is a lot of girl-on-girl love going on in that park. Ah, the French.
My new boyfriend, hanging out by the tower.
And, of course, there are little towers to be had everywhere. Nancy looks adorable here with her sparkly tower.
While the bateaux may seem tacky and touristy, it gives a great view, and without any tourists to muck it up.
