This was a weekend of reflection and I went through some photos taken during various trips. This was taken at dusk, from the second tier of the Eiffel Tower, taken last year in spring when Linda and I visited Holland and Paris. I like this picture as it is not a shot I would have taken had I been alone. I admit I do not do heights very well at all, but Linda convinced me to go up. While I was petrified, the views are magnificent in the end, I was pleased I went.
This is a view looking towards the North West. That cluster of tall buildings is the main business sector of Paris, called La Defense and is the largest purpose-built business district in Europe. Those gardens are the Jardins du Trocadero and that big structure that curves around the gardens is the Palais de Chaillot. It stands on a hill that used to be the site of a small village. The East and West wings of the structure now house several museums: The Naval Museum, The Museum of Man, the Museum of Architecture and the Museum of French Monuments, none of which we got to see.
