Saturday Extra: What makes Ferris Wheels so amazing is not the engineering marvel itself, but the total craziness of going round and round on a huge wheel for no other reason than to go round and round. The Grand Roue de Paris is currently rolling in Jardins Tuileries, and what a magnificent wonder it is (only dwarfed by that better known Tower Eiffel). If you are in Paris, the best time to fly Ferris style, is at night, when the city of light is totally lit.
