A view for the birds

I have discovered that I am traveling with a flock of birds. If a building and/or structure is tall, they must find the upper most perch. When we visited the Arc De Triomphe, I thought that I had a wonderful view from ground level. But some of the ones of this opinion were talked into the trip up the steep spiral staircase. Once at the top, I began to realize that people, no matter what their culture, are basicly the same. The attendant found my reaction to heights very amusing.
The only thing that will keep some of the group from going all the way to the top, is the threat of a 45 minute wait in line there and back. The Eiffel Tower has three levels. The second and third levels are observation levels. I knew I would have to go up the Elffel Tower or my family would never forgive me. I went to the second level and stood in a long line to get back down. I just don't know how so many of our group got down before me. Don't get me wrong, the view at both the Arc and the Eiffel Tower was beautiful. It's just that the view from ground level was better.
