It does seem customary when tourists are touring that the proof that I have been here photos need to be taken.
I wonder if they should be taken when temperatures are at freezing point and it is a bit hard to muster a smile.
Ricky and I had arrived at the Eiffel Tower with time to spare for our tour and so we walked across the River Seine and this is the photo to prove I was there.
This photo was taken from the first level of the Eiffel Tower. Still very cold.
Amazingly I lost my gloves before the day was through. You would wonder that I even took them off.
