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.
