Tour Eiffel
(that's "Eiffel Tower" in French)
Paris, France
December 1996

It's me in the city of lights and Paris' most famous landmark. It was designed and built by the French civil engineer Gustave Alexandre Eiffel for the Paris World's Fair of 1889. The tower, without its modern broadcasting antennae, is 300 m (984 ft) high. Platforms, each with an observation deck, are at three levels; I managed to go to the uppermost deck.
