Want to buy an Eiffel Tower ?

Streets vendors around the Eiffel tower are not allowed to sell their stuff so every time police is around they spread around waiting for the place to be "safe" again to come back like here on my picture. It looks like a game of cats and dogs.

Ha ha, same thing in Stockholm, although they aren't trying to sell the tower there.

These guys are hilarious to watch. We sat on a bench by the Tower, and once they'd figured out we weren't buying they left us alone, and it was fun to watch them cluster at the foot of the elevator every time it came down, and try so very very hard to sell their souvenirs. Was also funny to see the (mostly) friendly rivalry between them.

I did not know it was illegal. Wow! They are very aggressive and have some really nice bling towers. I did resist the temptation to buy though.
