Never in a million years did I imagine taking a photo of the Eiffel Tower in person. Yet it happend! We took a bus to the Eiffel Tower but due to some protests happening near the Arc de Triomphe we had to get off early and walk. The sidewalks near the Eiffel are full of local Parisians and their touristy souvineirs. We crossed the Seine and headed toward the Jardins du Trocadéro and I stopped to snap this photo.
