.: Mellow grandeur :.

Delicate enclosure.

My brother took me out for a ride in his first set of wheels. I was about 11 years old. 

Me: "Look bro! It's the Eiffel Tower!"
Bro: "Silly little girl ... that's the electric transmission tower. :)"
Me: "You're no fun!"

Several years down the road as I was standing in front of the Eiffel Tower at the Champ de Mars, my brother sneaked behind my back and said ...

"Why are you admiring that electric transmission tower? :)" 

Amazing how that memory triggered when I visited a replica of the Eiffel Tower in Shenzhen, China.

Along with other memories. :)
