Pigeons on the Tour

Eiffel Tower

One of the places we visited in Paris back in August was the Eiffel Tower.

It was partly overcast, and would rain later in the day, but the view was still splendid. Here Sacre Coeur is in the distance.

It was the first time I was able to go all the way to the top (the sommet was sold out on earlier trips). The lines to the top floor were incredible; we waited about an hour on the second level before we could board elevators to the third (top). While crowded with tourists, some Paris residents appeared to seek relative solitude on the Tour Eiffel.

On the third level, I was surprised to find a paper diorama depicting the use of the tower in carrier pigeon experiments.

I’m pretty sure I was the only one there taking photos in this direction. 😉

Share the birds, share the love!
