My town : Paris

My town : Paris...
Today I would like to speak about "Eiffel Tower".
The 320.75 meters high Eiffel Tower was built for the International Exhibition of Paris of 1889 commemorating the centenary of the French Revolution.

Fascinating statistics include:
2.5 million rivets.
7000 tons.
Sways up to 12 cm in high winds.
Height varies up to 15 cm depending on temperature.
15,000 iron pieces (excluding rivets).
40 tons of paint.
1652 steps to the top.
