I don't know if it's just a familiarity effect, but this time I actually found the Eiffel tower fascinating. Especially at night with all the illumination, glittering every full hour. And it's just so huge when you stand right next to it!
The conference organizers actually wanted to organize the conference dinner in the restaurant on top of the tower. But it's maximum capacity is 300 people and there were ~500 at the conference. So we had our dinner on a boat. The biggest they could find.) And it was quite crowded still. So probably if they'd let us on the tower Oriol Nieto would just nock it over with all the jam session jumping
