Dakar and São Vicente

... and my first time at São Vicente, in Cabo Verde. It was really windy with a bumpy approach and landing in a short runway (1975 m long).

Looks like a desert!

"La Tour Eiffel"

January 2014

My first overnight of 2014 was in Paris. As we stay near Orly Airport, usually we don't go to the center of Paris. But this time a friend came with me and - despite being a very short stay - it was mandatory to see at least the Eiffel Tower.






Avenue des Champs-Élisées...


... et l'Arc de Triomphe.


Beautiful, beautiful Paris! À la prochaine!
