Paris

I had been looking forward to a quiet september but as it often happens in my life suddenly everything changes. I had to go to Paris for work twice in the past two weeks and I wasn’t too happy about it. But I do what I have to do – part of my understanding of doing my job. Last week it was just an overnighter but this week I had two nights so on the second night I went geo-caching around the Eiffeltower. When it started to get dark I had enough and was thinking about taking the metro back but then decided to walk since I was already closer to the bridge over to the Trocadero than the metro. One of the best decisions I have ever made… 😉 It got darker and the lights on the Eiffeltower went on. It looked different but I didn’t really notice. When I crossed the bridge I thought that it had been stupid to carry around my ‚big‘ camera when I had been taking pics with my mobile… 10 meters later I saw an add about the lights of Japan on the Eiffeltower for two nights. When I went by it was the first night. So I imagined there would be white and red on the Eiffeltower. What I didn’t know was that at 20:30 h they started with a 10 minutes lightshow that usually is showing for 5 minutes at the full hour. After that there was a light show with music that lasted 10 minutes and then it started again. I watched it twice and it was absolutely FANTASTIC. On the website I read that this was a special display to celebrate the 160th anniversary of diplomatic relationships between France and Japan. I felt really really blessed that I just happened across this without knowing it… See some pics here…
