That orange colour gave it character, but it's nice to bring some change, sometimes.

It's not annoying to enquire. It's certainly better than posting a ream of random, questionable self-promotional statistics.

The beautiful twins are slated to start construction in the first half of 2014 (presumably Q2), according to its official blog: http://hermitage.fr/blog/

They have to mean the demolition of the current building, not construction.

The Eiffel Tower pays tribute to Nelson Mandela

The South Africa - France Seasons 2012 & 2013, in partnership with the City of Paris and SETE (Société d'Exploitation de la Tour Eiffel) will pay tribute to Nelson Mandela on the Eiffel Tower.

From 14 - 16 December the inscription "NELSON MANDELA 1918-2013" will be lit on the facade of the Eiffel Tower facing Trocadero in 5 meter-high letters, while a set of sky tracer projectors will be lit in the colors of the South African flag.

And there's a lot of 60s, 40, 30s, 1890s, it doesn't matter to me. All the time frames have their own beauties and unique aspects.
