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.
Fly away home…
Time is flying by and it’s already my second last day here in Lausanne. Last evening, we walked by Lake LÃ©man and I caught sight of these sparrows flying and it reminded me that however far we go, we all have to return home at some point of time…
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.
Lots to write about Barcelona but not much time right now – an absolutely beautiful city – and itÂ´s no wonder why it rates among the top most livable cities in the world.
The last 3 days went off in a flurry. I guess it was a little ambitious to see London in 3-4 days, but I still have another 3 days after I come back.
A near disaster @ Mumbai airport…
My journey started off on a slightly scary note when I reach the airport at 5 am on the 13th morning to find that the Gulf Air flight I am taking to London via Abu Dhabi is rescheduled.
