Once upon a time in disneyland
I didn't even imagine i would be travelling this month,but anyways that's how this Paris trip popped up.I was complaining to my friend that i needed a break and he came up with the idea of us going to Paris/Disneyland,I was already planning to go with my sister to the one in yankee but i don't trust those embassy people ,so this was a better option.I had my Schengen Visa from my previous trip so that one was no wahala.
The hotel was not too far from Disney,agbaya like me i couldn't go on many rides,that's what watching CSI can do to you.They are celebrating their 15 year anniversary so there were many more activities going on.The rides that i managed to go on were cool even though they were not full of thrills,my expressions in the pics were bad enough for me not to purchase them.The teacup ride made me queasy somehow some people were trying to make it go really fast,i was too glad when it was over.The studio tour tram ride, complete with explosions was fun,they showed us how they filmed explosion scenes.They also did the earthquake scenes with huge surge(where did the vocab. come from,hehe) of water.Anyway sha the boat was shaking so much i had to hold onto a pole,it was mad exciting.
The first day i took a picture with goofy at the hotel since mickey was hiding somewhere,i can swear the guy was trying to tap current.Even costumes can't stop some guys sha.
I wanted to go onto the Eiffel tower but once again the queue would not allow me,the pics i took of it were not so clear,guess i was too far away.
Even the food in the hotel was not bad,the breakfast spread was cool unlike some places were they give you one slice of bread cut into two,chei.
Moving around was not too easy with me and my friend not particularly fluent in french(particularly ko,not even one bit sef) and with english-speaking people few and far between or they could have been pretending.There was this hawt black guy that i saw and decided to ask for directions,see me trying to use my JS3 French and one yeye phrase book
Classy...Bonjouir(My friend was busy laughing behind)
Classy..... la gare routière(those phrase books are not too helpful with pronunciation sha).I was surprised he understood it,because i was sure i was murdering the language,lol
Hawt guy...... traversez "something something" de la rue .............
Classy(busy looking at his face and daydreaming)
After he had finished giving his directions,i just nodded and said Merci, cussing that i cldn't speak french.I am sure the poor guy thought he had passed on some good information.
It was fun sha,Paris is a cool place to visit but i doubt if i can live there.
This trip didn't even prevent me from blog stalking,i am glad the hotel had a good Internet connection.
For footie lovers,this is the video of the new Manchester United 9yr old recruit.The boy looks good sha for his age
