1st January 2012: Eiffel Tower
I went to the Eiffel Tower for new year celebrations. I was disappointed to learn that fireworks were forbidden in Paris but I saw some videos of the previous years and they had some light show on the tower.
I arrived 90 minutes early to look for a good point of view. There were so many people and cops everywhere that I had to walk away from the tower. The rain stopped around 23:00 and I decided to make a small timelapse with about 1000 pictures. I stopped at 23:58 to switch to video mode but for nothing. Indeed, I was very surprised to see that they actually didn’t do anything special for the occasion. Compared to other cities like London or Sydney, Paris seemed so cheap and boring.
