Ceci n'est pas le Eiffel Tower from Richard Canard

This was sent to me back in August 2012.  It is not the Eiffel Tower and, technically, it is not the Tokyo Tower either.  Towers are difficult to be sent by the mail.  I very much prefer to receive a picture of it.

Your accent is spot on, Mr. Canard ( which means it goes well with your tie, I presume.)

Visual images are always reliable.  However, languages are important Dr. Duck.  I was once at an airport in China and had to get back to Paris quickly.  Like yourself do not speak Chinese, so I drew a picture of the Eiffel Tower.  To my surprise, a few hours later, I was landing in Tokyo.

That's what I get for goofing off in grade school art class.
