One of the perfect editing studio for me will be mr.Eiffel apartment on the very top of the Eiffel Tower. 1710 stairs above the city, an amazing view, a cozy tiny metal place and total isolation above the clouds of Paris. Love it.

PHONE LIBRARY | In the 1940 Paris was under German occupation and the French resitance cut all the lift cables forcing the tower to close to the public for six years. When Hitler visited the city stairs were the only option but he decided to not walk up, what a lazy bastard.
