The Eiffel Tower remains closed today in the days following the cowardly bombings and murder in Paris. Although the creation of Gustave Eiffel’s masterpiece erected in 1889 was only supposed to a temporary entry arch for 1889 World’s Fair,it has remained to become the symbol of the city. I hope that soon the Champ de Mars is alive with people excited to ascend to the top and people flock to the Trocadero Plaza at sunset to see this sight.
The Centre Pompidou is a modern art museum in Paris that is truly one of the best in the world. Modern art both astounds me and makes me laugh. I saw this work at the Centre Pompidou that was a string of plain white Christmas lights haphazardly put on the wall with a little card that said “Untitled” and the name of the artist. It made me laugh so hard I had to leave the area. This is a view of Paris from the roof of the Centre Pompidou.
