We've finally made it

On our way:

And here we are! The Eiffel Tower!We have some friends who live in a different town in France, they moved here shortly after we did. Their daughter refused to believe that they lived in France until she saw the Eiffel Tower.
We'd seen it plenty of times, but just now finally climbed the...
no, we took the elevator up.

The Eiffel Tower in Paris is a near-perfect replica of the one I frequented as a kid in Kings Island. They say this one's taller, but I don't know. I mean, you can see both lifts of The Beast from the top of the Kings Island Eiffel Tower.

It's scary up there!
Even for Mighty Mouse.

Hey look that way! You can see our old home, a mere 7140km away!
That's 4437 miles. Or 3855 nautical miles.
Or 7,808,399 yards.
With a good tail wind, I could totally drive it. Probably with a 3-iron.
