la Tour Eiffel

Tour... in French it means Tower. The French call Eiffel Tower "la Tour Eiffel"... And it's the most recognizable iron structure in the world! It was built between 1887-1889. To me, it's the most genius iron structure since it has build in the 19th century! I do my morning walk by the river Seine all the time but still, I always feel amazed everytime i see Tour Eiffel...I took these two pictures below for my desktop wallpaper *actually i've a few more for my collection he he he...

I managed to climb up Tour Eiffel when En Arip was here and it was so tiring but definitely fun! You have the option of going up to the second level of Tour Eiffel either by stairs or elevator. We decided to go up by stair to the second level and from there, we went up to the peak by elevator. If you wish to go up Tour Eiffel, make sure you get there early in the morning, or you must be to prepared to wait in the long queue! Here are the pictures taken about a month ago...

We came very early so the queue has just started to form...

Those who choose to take the elevator to the second floor, they go up in lifts like the one on the right...

If you choose to go up by stair like we did, make sure you are not afraid of height or gayat, and you have enough stamina... I was trying to control my breathing in this pic..*tanak nampak cungap2ahaha

Luckily I was already on the first floor when the queue gets long!

And I needed a rest...it was so tiring! Luckily, they have a cafe on the first floor, too...


Later, we continued climbing, while enjoying the magnificient view of Paris!
