The Eiffel Tower as seen from the gardens at the Musee Quai Branly, on a hot summer day. The museum was designed with the idea that it was sited in the shadow of the most famous monument in Paris. The tower is visible from the gardens that surround the museum.
The administrative building of the museum is the home of its own work of art - can you guess what it is by looking at the photo? No secrets here - all will be revealed in a future post!
We walked on past the museum, to the base of the great tower - it was magnificent, soaring....and yet the crowds at the base were vast and, with the lines and the souvenir stands - for me - off-putting.
Can I just admire it from here, in the park? They say that the best time to visit the Tour Eiffel is at night. [The Man I Love] and I had other plans for our evenings, but....next time that's what I'll do.
Because - there will be a next time for me to go to Paris. For sure.
