Yet Another... Eiffel Tower

Yesterday's edition of Le Figaro had an article on a new Eiffel Tower being constructed in China, yet another in a long list of replicas around the world.
So add another dot to the Eiffel Tower map.

I already knew about Las Vegas, pictured above. But Paris,Tennessee, was news to me.

The new Eiffel Tower in China, 108 meters tall, is being built in the middle of a re-created 7th arrondissement, complete with Parisian-style immeubles haussmaniens. Chinese real estate development firm Guangsha, which has created this new community in the outskirts of Hangzhou (about 200 kilometers from Shanghai), already has a Champs Elysées in place, too. Next addition: vineyards.
