Frankfurt, day one

It was an early morning, leaving from Paris. I think we woke up at about 4. My flight was at 7 or so, and we were a good hours train ride to the airport since we were on the opposite side of the city.

Even the baguette-makers were awake

Me to Germany, her to US

Once I arrived at the Frankfurt airport, it took me a while to figure out the train system. I mean, the key? Flughafen = airport

The main train station, where I stayed about 3 blocks from. Easy to get back to the airport the next morning

Lunch #1

Lunch #2. I had to. This guy was a mobile rindswurst/bratwurst station.

It was cold - so I wen tot the mall to walk around and people watch

Then, it started to rain

By that time I was quite pooped, so it was tine to go back to the hotel and sleep. Long day of traveling back to India the following day. End of vacation, back to work :(

Paris, day three

In the morning, innocent enough. From the outside at least.

Then you have to walk down some shifty steps.

Past an evacuation plan

A quarry?

Not really. Exactly, at the end of the pics.

With flash.

Without flash.

Where we were? Read it..

Then, off to happier things. Or is it, more shady?

A simple wall

A walk up

To the top of it

Still at the top, another church

Where everyone hung out on the steps, amongst all of those people - a cover band

A museum... some, crazy

Then off to dinner. I stayed safe. Duck a la orange.

The girl? Decided she wanted something very French. Like, steak tartare. It was actually pretty good, though would much rather have an appetizer of it rather than an entire meal

Back, to the hotel

Another good day

Paris, day two

Off we went, via the train/subway

Breakfast. Some sort of delicious bread with delicious chocolate

and a baguette, of course.

From this place

Off past Rue de Rivoli to where Louis XIV got communion

Which was just a little ways over to the Notre Dame

We then sat for a little while, and people watched

What's pretty cool, is that it seems like there was always someone playing music. Even in the middle of a bridge.

Then, for lunch.. back to the best sandwich place. We almost didn't go, thinking it may not live up to the taste it had just the day before.

But, it did

After lunch, another Pantheon

Walking over to one of the coolest areas, we thought




Dinner, a makeshift picnic.
