Went down to my local patisserie “Gateaux” to buy a celebratory slice of cake (for a friend’s birthday). The shop was getting ready for Bastille Day celebrations, so I thought it was time to salute La Tour Eiffel.
Any visitor to Paris has ample opportunity to see this omnipresent iron lattice tower which was engineered by Gustave Eiffel, who built this as the entrance portal to the 1889 World’s Fair. The tower stands 320 metres (1,050 ft) tall, about the same height as an 81-storey building. Of course it is art, architectural art. Vive le France and Joyeux Le Quatorze Juillet.
