To batalay: Paris
Hello Bulent--

I was in Paris for two weeks last month, for a conference and then a research collaboration. The ferris wheel in Place de la Concorde appears to be temporary for the holidays--I think if they were putting one permanently they would choose a less historically significant "sacred" location. Otherwise it would be worse than the outcry when the Eiffel Tower was first built, when a group of artists and writers wrote to the French government, "Is this the horror that the French have created in order to impress us with their vaunted taste?...We loathe the prospect of a dizzily ridiculous tower dominating Paris like a gigantic black factory chimney."

Regards, Ken
