Lady in Red (and White)

One can't have a blog about Paris with too many pictures of the Eiffel Tower, right? Non, c'est impossible! I caught these last weekend when the tower was dressed in red and white in tribute to the country of Turkey, part of a larger celebration in Paris that started in July and goes through next March. It was crazy pretty although I don't particularly recommend being on the tower itself when it starts twinkling on the hour. Those flashing lights are enchanting from a distance but if you're mid climb, it's a little too much strobe for those of us who tend toward motion sickness.

HI Anne...was that just a one night wonder or is it still like that? Last year they had the stars and the blue remember?

It was red and white only from October 6th through 11th; everything's now back to normal.

I love it when they dress up la Tour Eiffel. I never thought about being on there when the twinkling takes place. It must be strange and I may have to experience someday just to find out for myself.
