Skating in the Eiffel Tower

This guy linked to this, and from him I learned of this, this being that they have built a skating rink inside the Eiffel Tower. The photo he has is okay, but I found what I believe is a better one here:

It's all part of the big Paris Push to get the 2012 Olympics.

Interesting the way they're doing cool things in cities, just to get these games. The games themselves, I think, are stupid. But the things being done to get them include some good stuff. Like this.

London is in this race too. With luck we'll get lots of good things too. And Paris will get the damn games.
