Of chance meetings

I thought my time in Paris would be spent alone. Not that I had any problems. With its efficient rail and bus system, Paris is very much geared for tourists and it is difficult to get lost. I covered quite a lot of ground in the three days I was there. Including walking up the Champs-Elysees from Franklin Roosevelt station and the Eiffel Tower from Trocadera Gardens station, just as Jag had suggested (thanks Jag!). I especially loved the Louvre (where my head started spinning after a few hours) and the Moulin Rouge, the Basilica of Sacre Coeur and that whole bargain shopping stretch at Montmarte.

Meeting the handsome Mr Bagha!

Lausanne is picture postcard pretty – everywhere you turn there is something worth clicking. Steph picked me up from the airport and we came home to grab a bite. Bagha was nowhere around (he was probably chasing a lady somewhere, but Steph said he was more likely asleep!). So we had to leave without finding him.
