Africa Trek author Alexandre Poussin appeared on CNN today in a news feature about the 120th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower.
Reporter Jim Bittermann interviewed Alexandre about his experiences climbing the tower – not the legal, customary way, but the daring and illegal way, scaling the outside of the tower to hang from its top girders.
“There are ultimate seconds in your lifetime that are engraved in your soul forever,” Alexandre said in the CNN report.
Alexandre, who lives in France, has climbed the Eiffel Tower 38 times, even posing for magazine pictures at the top. See Alexandre Poussin’s interview on CNN.
