50 hours extended travel = Eiffel Tower dharisanam

This is what happened.

My flight from Atlanta to Paris got delayed. So i missed the connecting flight from Paris to Chennai. They gave me ticket for Paris to Mumbai on the next day flight. France transit visa was rejected by french police, first time. So airport-laye thevudu kaathen. Then at the end of the day, we asked for visa again and it got approved (Oru friend kaikuzhandayoda irundhaanga...avanga punniyam). Went to hotel at around 6. Enquired about Eiffel tower. Oru 40 minutes agaunu sonnaga. Udane pudi cab. Vaazhkayila idhai parka ellam namba kasu selavupanniya poga porom. Never.

Appa sutta padangalil konjam...

Naan ponenu neenga nambanum illa :)

Namma Eiffel

Avar kattina tower...avar-na avar mattum illenga....niraya per serndhudhaan katinaanga :)

P.S: Vaazhga delta airlines-oda service. Ippadi flight ellam delay panradhula evlo nalladhu nadakuthu...
