A brisk ride over the colonies on the edges of the city took us to the Iskcon Ashram where we were to stay for the following five nights. A pleasant comfortable place with an Indian milieu, amidst a suburb, at a distance from the bustling city was inviting.

Day 3 – The Vast Beauty of Versailles Palace! – On our third day, we visited the Versailles Palace, which is immense and maintained, albeit every last bit of it doesn’t house especially incredible exhibits with the exception of the mirror room.

Time to bid adieu – Au Revoir – The time had come to bid adieu to the city of Love, to the trip of dreams, to Paris – A flawlessly spread out city, entertaining as though a major living museum and a gem itself. The French, not actually tourist friendly, are endeavoring to conquer the pomposity credited to them throughout the years. We had all the more then we dreamt for from the tour. We had missed numerous things because of a tight schedule incorporating a stroll in the Tuileries Garden, Pere Lachaise Cemetery, Catacombs, Musee d’Orsay, Musee de l’Orangerie, Lido Show, Moulin Rouge, Musee Picasso, French Cuisine or wine being Jain Veg Teetotallers and a lot more appealing things. We promise ourselves to return to Paris for a longer stay.
