"The Eiffel Tower in Paris, France
is repainted every seven years
with about 60 tons of paint
at the cost of about $20 million dollars.
The specially chosen colors
are named Eiffel Tower brown numbers 1, 2 and 3
as there are three shades of brown
to emphasize the shape of the tower
as seen from the ground
-the lightest shade at the top,
and the darkest at the bottom."
