I was thinking of Paris. Then I ran across a number of photos of the Eiffel Tower from my travels and decided to show a small series of them.

Image The boats moving on the Seine are called the Bateau Mouche and some of them have a dinner cruise.  Though it takes one off the streets and into a boat full of tourists it is somehow historical to approach the city from this ancient passage and see the faces on the bridges or the house boats lined up on the sides of the river.  Cheesy it might be but it has a charming link to the past that appeals to me.
