Alice and Helen by the Eiffel Tower in Paris
Episode 108: Sight-seeing
Helen: The guidebook says 'The Eiffel Tower weighs 7,300 tons and is 324 metres tall'.
Alice: Really?
Helen: Yes, but who cares about the facts and figures, let's go up!
Alice: Up there? Oh it's so much nicer seeing it from the ground. Tell me more about this fascinating piece of architecture.
Helen: Mmh, let's see, 'The tower can sway up to 7 centimetres in the wind.'
Alice: Oh no! I'm definitely not going up now.
Helen: You can't come to Paris and not go up the Eiffel Tower.
Alice: Just watch me!
Helen: You're not scared, are you Alice?
Alice: The technical term is acrophobia, if you must know.
Helen: Oh come on, take my hand. We'll go up slowly, I promise.
Alice: No!
