Hi to all readers and followers!
I’ve finally prepared a little interesting, a bit of fun description of the trip to Paris (ETP X).
This description will be able to read my thoughts, impressions during the trip. I can already tell you in front of that were very many interesting places.
The pictures are very much (as a whole came in 2393 frames), so I put a small part, though after a while the rest will come. I hope that will be able to get into this journey, read my written diary.
The time is taken into Latvian time.
First day (Friday, 22 March)

9:55 Take off, but the Riga airport runway is as bumpy as other Latvian roads.
10:15 We are already 15 km altitude and fly with about 815km / h over the Baltic Sea. First impressions of the first flight feeling very strange, a little spooky. I was up first before climbing an airplane ticket control.
13:00 Settle in Paris, a bit of confusion in the big airport, but calling the office of the apartment, had to change plans – call a taxi had to drive to pick up the keys for office (although as it turned out later, office there was even close). Taxi for boarging already recites 2,50 euros, but on the highway noticed that every 3 seconds, gradually increasing the price by 10 cents.
19:45 Look at my notebook and realize that I have forgotten to write down impressions of our home, located in the Rivoli Street, at the intersection where you can see the Louvre. Meanwhile, in the meantime, had gone to the tower along the Seine shore. When it comes to the goal, realize that really no longer a force to be back home, went in very large pieces. Weather relatively satisfactory, the sun all day trying to penetrate through the clouds.
Second day (Saturday, 23.march)
6:00 Mom got up earliest and awakens others also. It seems that time has stopped in the night even tired to sleep comfortable and soft bed, which at the beginning had to understand how to open.
