It was getting dark. We walked across a bridge because Johanna wanted to see some famous sculptures. We walked past a red bicycle rikshaw. Johanna said we need to take that red rikshaw and go to see the Eiffel Tower. I agreed. Yes, that red one, definately that red one.
We walked across the street and had a look at the sculptures and headed back to the red rikshaw. There were other rikshaws but they weren’t good enough, we needed to take the red one. So we declined all the other offers and walked straight to the red one.
"Eiffel Tower, 20 euros". Great, yes, 20 euros, sounds awesome, and doesn’t include walking :). We hopped in and Toma (which we learned later) started cycling away. It was nice and relaxing, I was taking pics, Johanna was probably laughing and Toma was cycling and telling us stories. Like - "Would you like to know more about the history of those buildings?" "No Toma, too tired for that, just keep cycling :D".
"Actually, girls, I’m a famous reality tv-star from Bulgaria". Yes, Toma, yes, just keep cycling :). But that’s what he actually was - a reality tv winner from Bulgaria. Very good at posing too. Then he stopped cycling and took out his phone. And showed us all the famous people he’s met in the US. Like Dennis Rodman and I can’t remember the other ones. And then he started cycling again and took us to the Eiffel Tower. After asking us how old we were. I told him I’m xxx years old. He didn’t believe me. Yep, not a joke, I’m old :D.
He dropped us off at the Tower, it was already dark. “Don’t give anything to those guys who ask for one euro. They will steal your wallet.”
It was nice to meet you, Toma Goranov :). Hopefully we meet again :).
