We arrived at the platform and waited and waited for ever. Then RJ said:
RJ: Maybe she's waiting in the metro station at the platform?
ME: No way, i said her - at the station, entrance of the platform 7.
RJ: She might not know where's the platform, im telling you, she must be there - somewhere downstairs in the metro.
ME: She is just a bit late. But she will find it.
RJ: Maybe we should go to the metro station?
ME: It's weird. I better call her.
ME: Lili, where are you?
Lil: Im waiting in the metro, but where the heck is platform 7? there are only two platforms. And what's actually platform?
ME: What? Still in metro? You have to go out of the metro and walk to the train station - enter the main hall and find the platform 7 with a HUUUUGE '7' at it.
Lil: What? Am i wrong? Ok, wait.
Few minutes later we saw her going through the main hall of Gare du Nord - we were laughing. Then Lili asked, what the 'platform' actually is, coz she's confused now.
After this funny start of the day we headed to Tour Eiffel to celebrate again our belated NYE. First we went to Passy stn. to take the pictures, we saw once on internet but.... ther was a horrible fog and we could see only the half of the tower haahha. Nevermind, the picture is now probably even more specific, more interesting.
We could drink finally our NYE-beer and coz we were a bit hungry - and there was a bit of kiełbasa still left so we walked drinking and eating, and fooling of course towards the Tour Eiffel.
There was a huuuuuuuUUUuuuuUUuuuuuge line so we gave up and didnt climb the tower. Im sure Lili and RJ will come again and will go there some day... And again - we got hungry, we went back to Saint Michel and found a french restaurant which was pretty much empty besides us... and wouldnt you know it.. its start to fill up fast... it always seems to happen when we show up.. hahah ... no bullshit it's been like that all the time later, in Madrid, Valencia and Barceona as well! hahaha!
We had some good food (and the two Lil and RJ finally could taste the french cuisine). It got kinda late so we left Lili alone in the heart of Paris in hope she would survive there;) and went back to the hostel, to pick up the luggage and off we go to the airport.
I already mentioned this stupid woman at "Chatelet les Halles"-RER-station working at the info-point, who was bitchy and only pretending not to understand what kind of info i needed (even if i tryed to express myself in her own language) - so if u see her there (she's middle aged, light brown pretty short hair - i regret i dint take the picture;) - and say 'hallo bitch' to her from me - and dont bother to try say it in french coz she will be pretending not to get it, and that way maybe she will learn some 'words' of this kind in every human language;)
So we arrived at CDG-airport by RER. Checked-in and ... as we wanted to pass the security check and then have some coffe or chocolate over there in the 'free'-zone - we relized, there are no coffe shops, no shops at all, litteraly NOTHING we regreted to have passed the security check that early.
I had to leave the silly zone when going to the restrooms and then getting checked again by security guys! But im still lucky, coz i didnt get harassed by them like RJ, they touched him and searched ahahhahahahaha (Poor RJ! Sue them!;)
RJ have even more bad experiences with this airport, but fortunately we left it soon on the plane to Madrid.
