@chikkars - Nice photos. Keep 'em coming. By the way the Peugeot showroom / museum , I remembered seeing one in Paris and Champs Elysees. It was awesome. Now with newer concept cars the pix you have posted it is a feast for auto buffs like us. Too bad Peugeot never made it big in India.

Awesome pics Chikkars!

Peugeot has some really nice concept cars in the pics and so does Renault.

Was the Renault Twingo an e-Car/hybrid or fuel powered? Looks a lot like Micra in the pic posted

Oh man.. the Dutch ice cream is already making me salivate on my key board.

Shucks!! Dont tell me you are still reading that damn Outliers after about 4 months of having it with you. I hope you would have finished it by the time you come back

I just come back from lunch and see all the pictures of ice cream and what not.

I want an ice cream now.

How come you had just one petit chocolate eclair, I would have stuffed myself to the brim

@chikkars - missed your write-up since I was on vacation during that time; The first pics were killers as I'm a lover of Bonneville; incidently you posted scrambler. I wish you'd posted a lot more on motorcycles & pastas.

The 96 cubic inch of Fatboy is great; appreciate to post the pic of Fatboy too

What else did you see? Any Nortons? Triumph Thunderbird or Speedmaster? Pls keep them coming.

PS - What about any Jap motorcycles? Were they less compared to others?

That is surprising. In my multiple visits to Paris, I was approached by many sellers asking "You want bling bling", showing the souvenirs. Very few were indiands. People were even selling roses at a huge price.
Most of those sellers I saw were of African Origin, Bangladeshis, Srilankan tamils, and some Pakistanis. Very few Indians I saw there.

Wow! So many pics in one update.. Well you are giving more meaning to the thread being a photolog.

Great pics and knowing you, even at 11 in the night, it would have been hard for you to call it day

Lovely Pics.

Was that coffee free with the ticket? Looks nice.

I am really surprised to know that they allow to click photographs. Is there any restriction on use of flash? Flash use deteriorate the antiquities over a period of time. I wish I could use camera in the Egyptian museum here.

Waiting to hear the rest of the story.

Amazing pics buddy! The apple tart looks delicious :P

I was about to ask you about the Monalisa pics and also the famed pyramids at the entrance. You have captured both in your camera and it was as if I was there looking at them.

Great going!! You have now made it a photo-travelog.
