Paris had been fun.
The second day of Paris was fruitful and more enjoyable. We met up with Anastasia and her two younger sisters. It is pleasant to have familiar faces in a foreign place. And the five of us embarked on a tour around Paris. Dining in Paris was fun. The most memorable was when we tried escargots, a dish of snails, which tasted a lot like chicken. (:
Anyone who goes to Paris would definitely visit the Paris tower, and we did too. However, the weather was not as sunny as grey clouds blanketed the city throughout the day. We pre-bought the tickets to go to the summit of Paris tower, otherwise we had to queue for hours to buy the tickets on the spot.
Paris tower was crowded, and we had to wait for hours before we could reach the top. Like anything else worth waiting for, and we did, we finally reached the top the view was breathtaking, even if we couldn’t see much of it.
We also went to the Lourve Museum, but the queue to enter the museum was at least six hours long, so we decided against it. It is amazing how patient people would wait under the drizzling rain just for a glimpse of the Mona Lisa portrait. My brother was so excited about visiting one of the shooting sites of Da Vinci Code – a movie i have yet to watch.
To be honest, I was more fascinated by the fountain surrounding the pyramid structured building.
Since we couldn’t get in, we walked round Paris to see other landmarks we identified during the bus tour.
The roads in Paris were pretty crazy. Some roads are at least 10 lanes wide, with no particular lines in between. The drivers in Paris can be classified as either dangerous or skillful, depending on how optimistic you are. And I thought the drivers in London are crazy enough.
Paris is beautiful, but all good things must come to and end, as we left Paris after four days.
Maybe someday I’ll visit the city of love again.
