The Eiffel Tower

I finally arrived at this city, massive metro system all around. Coming from engineering point of view, I got the feeling that the stations are historically placed, tracks next to each other to make digging easier but sacrificing the ease of traveling through platforms, and conveniently joining different lines by interlocking staircases without escalators. This is very elderly and luggage unfriendly. Walking between connecting stations is chaotic.

Nonetheless, I have to visit the Eiffel Tower:

My favourite shot of the day.
Actually, I was disappointed when I arrived. It's crowded with people, tourists, performers, merchants, and scamers. The grass patch is destroyed, people camp at 8~9pm before the light turns on. It was pretty, yes, it was super crowded, and next day morning the workers have to clean up the mess.

Demonstration

An accidental photo journalist for a day, a peaceful demonstration by the Congolese, against their own government I think. Even the heavy rain can't stop their patriotism.

The police force are very effective according to my sources. They are fully armored, maintaining the traffic while the demonstration is going on. I also seen them in action while catching unauthorized merchants and scammers. My source says they take no bribery, when they catch the merchants that's 90 pounds fine.
