April in Paris

We were walking along the banks of the Seine and then through the streets of le 7e arrondissement for about two hours, hunting for the Eiffel in the dark of the late night.

At every turn where a magnificent house was getting aside to make a way for a small street, the Eiffel was escaping us by hiding behind another house -- as if it was moving away from us with every step we were taking toward it.

Then, suddenly, the very moment we lost our hope, it appeared before us unhindered in all its beauty. I uttered 'Terrific!' and continued to walk. My friend got disappointed at my reaction -- as I had got disappointed in Paris.
