An American Spaniard in France or: How I Learned to Make an Ass of Myself in Three Cultures

A nice view

Like most people, I’ve seen a lot of pictures of the Eiffel Tower, but I can’t recall ever coming across this view.

This is the part where I recommend Erik Larson’s book The Devil in the White City : Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America. It’s about the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago and there is actually a connection to the Eiffel Tower so it’s not that strange that a pointy thing in Paris makes me think of the Ferris wheel on Navy Pier.

I'm an American Spaniard, living in France. I like to tell stories.

  1. LOVE that book! And this photo!

    • Glad you liked both. Someone recently described The Devil… as “like Moby Dick” in the sense that one part was exciting and the other was boring. I found all of it interesting and Moby Dick entirely snooze-inducing.
