... for a while, I did a massive load of washing and then...
WE WENT UP THE EIFFEL TOWER!
It was amazing, Zoe was in her element! It wasn't too crowded and because we had pre-purchased tickets we didn't have to queue. The view from right up the top was magnificent, we could pick out the Arc de Triumph, Notre Dame, the Louvre and the Champs de Elyse. George loved seeing the height comparisons ...

The bus takes us into the military district, past the military college where Napoleon trained and to the golden guilded dome of the Musee de ...
... the railing collapsed inward, and not over the side into the river below, which could have done major damage to tourists on tour boats, or to the normal barge traffic that passes under the bridge. According to local news reports, the damaged section has been temporarily replaced, and the bridge re-opened. Only time will tell whether this kind of incident will convince the city and its new lady mayor to restrict or ban the practice.
