1 PM – 2.40 PM: Explored Pont de Bir-Hakeim (Famous bridge near Eiffel Tower) featured in Marlon Brando’s “Last Tango In Paris” opening scene. I saw a foreign couple in their wedding dress roaming around in Paris accompanying a photographer to click their picturers. Pretty cool!
I strolled alongside Seine river. For an hour i walk aimlessly on the streets of Paris and stumbled upon cozy cafes, beautiful gardens & buildings, Cathedral and Formula one cars’ yard! Best experience in Paris.
