Photographer's Note

It was my daughter who conviced me to go to Paris for a weekend with her and my wife.
I was alway a bit sceptical about Paris and I dont know why ;+]],but she said come on you sound like a silly old man,lets go!
After a long bus drive we arrived in the Hotel late in the afternoon,and our first priority was,....the Eifel
tower,my daughter had a""brilliant idea"",lets go to the top!
Well that night we were one of the 386000 other people waiting to go inside one of the small elevators,the line of tourists from all over the world was incredible
After an hour and a half we nearly reached the cashier
to pay a months salary to go inside,finally we were pushed into the elevator to first level.
From the first level to the top at about 300m,we had to take another elevator (waiting,waiting,waiting.....).
But once on top I forgot all suffering within seconds,it was just amazing.....,the city was changing
into pink and orange by the sunset.
I felt the mighty power of paris all over me,what a great place,I thought and kissed my daughter for making the right move to bring us here!
The way down was another hour,but who cares ;]]
