Duped


So, my brother, who kindly rented all the bikes while we were gallivanting around in Paris, finally got his CC bill. Come to find out, these bikes are NOT 1 Euro a day. They are 1 Euro to get the pass to rent them then they are billed hourly and get more expensive the longer you have them. I guess we did not see the fine print in French. A little under $300 in bike rentals for 4 days. The French stuck it to us.

I love this shot. I still had fun on the bikes. I'd do it again if I ever went back too--I'd just scramble my scrawny self to a bike rack every 30 minutes!

ha ha ha ha ha! I'm so sorry that I find this so incredibly hilarious. I am evil. I'm sorry.

Dang. I guess the whole "if its too good to be true it probably is" thing really applied here! Cool picture anyway! :)
