Tank pics? Man, I live close to a place where these are being manufactured & have been seeing them since childhood. I don't see anything spectacular.

@aargee. That's because you've been seeing them since childhood. For me even water tanks look spectacular!

@SanjayKaul. Where's the place where the bird is sitting on her finger? And Arc Du Triumphe looks good as ever. Did you also go to the Notre Dame? The Pape was scheduled to visit 1 week after we were there. Missed him due to that.

We had bought the Euro Disney tickets online to avoid the ticket counter rush. Reached early and started our day with the park. We went to some of the areas where rides were available and registered for the fast pass. Went to the sections like Pirates of Caribbean, etc.

I spent considerable time in Studio Disney (thatís what I was interested in, more than the park. The sets were amazing (Breathtaking). The old cars, the station, Burning London, aliens, fighter planes, The Armageddon Drill (Remember Bruce Willis handling the drill in Armageddon? The machine is there for display) and lot of other stuff. It was worth the time, money, effort and energy.

In the evening, I came back to park for the Disney parade.

Pictures will do the talking

When we went there we had fireworks on the occasion of the 15th anniversary. The castle looks magical in those lights with those fireworks. It was raining as well, which made my exposures very tricky as I didn't carry a tripod either. However I liked the disney in Orlando more. I loved the universal studios the most.

Thatched stuff are actually Oyster Farms. This is a common sight on the English Channel coast. I will upload a Concale Video tomorrow. It is an interesting video. Do watch it.

We actually walked most part of the Lawns. It was fantastic because of the climate. We did feel tired but only after we went back to hotel

Some pictures from my side as well. I hope you mind hijacking your thread
Louis XIV is considered as France's greatest King ever and is also called the Sun King. Naturally, he would have had enough gold. History says that it was a common sight in India as well, until it was looted by the lunatics.

You are not hijacking but contributing and contributions are always welcome

Aaa Raaa Raaa. This is exactly what i tried to do. Set the expectations at the beginning of this travelogue.

I didn't get the chance to Visit South Of France. We do have some colleagues in Sophia Antipolice (Nice) which is on the Mediterranean (Am feeling jealous). Charming and Expensive, yes it is, but worth it.

Thanks for your kind words Sheetumanu. All credit goes to Sanjay for bringing me fond memories back with a mindblowing photo array!
Also he was kind enough to let people contribute to his thread without the fear of hijack (which can never be the case).
Above all, Sanjay's mush was terrific. As they say in GolMaal, The bigger the mush, the cleaner the heart is. Sanjay Kaul rocks. I'll post some teaser photos from my french album here as a tribute to Sanjay.

You are welcome MX6. You said it, THE MUSH is indeed terrific. By the way, he looks great and younger without the mush.

@Sanjay: How about obliging us with one of your non-mush pics?

Waiting for your teaser pics MX6.
