In October I asked Paris Breakfasts' readers for blog post and painting ideas. I got a lot of interesting suggestions...
- To paint the Eiffel Tower
- To go up in it
- To eat at the Jules Verne Restaurant in the Eiffel Tower
I'm not that keen on heights. And I don't paint monuments. Unless you call painting a macaron a Paris monument. I do. Consequently everywhere I turned in Paris I was confronted with an Eiffel Tower in one form or another. Was the Tour Eiffel stalking me? Then it became a misson to see how many I could find... This tower is definitively the iconic symbol of Paris.
If you walk into Bloomingdales, you will not see New York City's symbolic Big Apple everywhere. Not the case with Paris' Galerie Lafayette. This is one Tour Eiffel I could go for! Who doesn't love a snow globe?
