Don’t Trifle With The Eiffel

I can’t say anything that hasn’t already been said and better about the Eiffel’Tower other than regardless of all the pictures and footage you’ve seen of it nothing can quite prepare you for how totally massive and dominating it is once you get on under and up in it.

Susan and I voted unanimously not to bother with the time involved to get us up to the landmark’s highest level some 900 feet up. We were quite satisfied and exhilirated with the marvelous view found on the upper deck of the middle tier, such as this one spanning from the north to the east (you’ll wanna click to enlarge… and then max your browser window… then go out and get a bigger monitor and max the browser window on that):

Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
