Hmmm, Not My First Choice of Dive Site, but…

To promote the sport, scuba instructors began offering free lessons Friday — with wet-suits, scuba gear and even a biodegradable towel — at the foot of the French capital’s famed landmark.

I don’t think I’d be interested in this myself, as there are so many other things to do in Paris that don’t mix so well with diving.  But, I won’t knock anything that’s going to get more people interested in scuba diving.  I learned how to dive in Bonaire 6 years ago and I’ve loved it ever since.  I’d put up my own diving photos but I’m always to lazy to take them.

Speaking of photos, the picture above reminds me of my favorite picture of the Eiffel Tower.  I took it myself from the observation deck at the top by sticking my camera through the wires, pointing down and clicking.  It’s basically a the view of the tower you’d get if you jumped off it.  One of these days I’ll get a digital copy of it and stick it here.

  1. That’s really neat. I don’t think I’d go to Paris to jump off the Eiffel Tower, but it’s a really cool picture.

    My friend’s and I went to an amusement park the other day and they have a replica of the Eiffel Tower. This just reminded me of it.
