Paris - Day II

Long delay there from Day I to Day II. Mostly because I was so lazy...and photobucket was giving me upload problems. Anyways this is Day II of Paris:

Day II, I set out to explore Paris on my own since none of the rest wanted to leave the hotel. I rented a bicycle from the self-help bicycle stands available in many parts of the city, pretty convenient stuff.

Then of course there were brands like these:
BVLGARI

Jimmy Choo

And these are just some of the nice scenery taken which look very postcard-ish...

I finally arrived at Notre Dame, the iconic landmark of renaissance Paris. This is where Quasimodo the hunchback bell ringer came from!!! Haha

Here are the people who helped me took a picture of me in front of Notre Dame. They were doing a bit for some TV channel or university video project...

They say Paris is the most romantic city in the world where one finds love and falls in it, I say it is also a weird city where one finds strange encounters:

Is it just me or is the car damn weird looking. So is it because it was parked at a no-parking zone or were the police as amused?

The day was short lived, I had to report for work in the evening. I had late lunch after my day around Paris and what an expensive place to live in. A plate of steak with a glass of apricot juice cost €14, that's MYR70!

So there you go, Day II at Paris. Sorry I have to keep the posts concise and limit the number of pictures since I'll have tons of posts coming up.

ZURICH!!
