Paris

March 27th-March 30th 2015

Gw lumayan expect nothing tentang Paris. Karena gw denger2 kota ini banyak homeless, imigran jobless, kotor, ribet, dan banyak cerita pencopetan. Dan ternyataaaaa…this city is damn beautiful!!!!!!! One of the most beautiful cities that I’ve ever visited. Arsitek kota ini lumayan OCD kayanya. Simetri dimana-mana, circular dimana-mana, aristektur keren dimana-mana. Kayanya setiap kali mata gw memandang ada aja bangunan and pemandangan keren. Apalagi ada sungai Seine di tengah kota, jadi makin cantik aja. Sayang gw kesininya waktu Spring awal, jadi cuaca masih dingin and pohon2 yang daunnya terkenal dicukur rata itu masih belon ada. One day hopefully I can visit this pretty city in Summer. Louvre is awesome, Eiffel is so-so, Champs elysees is cool, but the overall experience when you stroll around the city is the best.

Reunion

The other great thing was I also visited this city with my family. It is a family reunion: my mother, my two sisters, my brother-in-law, my niece, and my nephew. We have planned this Europe trip quite long time ago. Let see whether it will work. Long trip with two kids is not easy. It is not like when I travel with my buddies. But it should be worth it, we don’t know when we can do this anymore.

Since we look like a group of Asian tourists with kids, we are definitely a sitting duck for those infamous-Parisian-pick-pockets. Satu kejadian waktu kita mau masuk ke metro, kakak gw yang paling besar lagi ngegandeng anak cowonya yang paling kecil dan mau duduk. Ketika mau duduk dia dihalang2in oleh dua orang cewek Gypsy muda gitu. Kejadiannya begitu cepat. Tau2nya kakak gw pasang muka galak and tarik tasnya salah satu cewek Gypsy dan teriak “That is my wallet!”. Ternyata si cewek itu ambil dompet dari tas kakak gw tapi tasnya ga ditutup balik. Jadi kakak gw yang sadar dompetnya hilang langsung ngelabrak si cewek gypsy itu. Dua cewek gypsy itupun pasang muka innocent mulai ngomong pake bahasa2 prancis dan ngeloyor turun di stasiun berikutnya. Emang dibalik kota yang keren dan cantik, biasanya selalu ada sisi-sisi gelap kaya gini.

Joko

Since it is in Paris, I was also able to meet my best buddy who works in Paris! Alsa aka Joko! As usual, he is super dependable, fun, and a great travelling partner. He accompanied us for two days and hopefully I will see him soon in another time.
