Paris From Above

We headed once again to Notre Dame to get in line nice & early to climb to the top of the cathedral.  There were not many people ahead of us, but the line grew quite a bit as we were waiting.  We managed to be in the second group that got to go up, so we were pretty happy about that!

 There are lots of gargoyles & animal drain spouts on the cathedral.

 We had a nice view of the city, & it wasn't raining!

We even got to go into the bell tower

We had seen "The Great Canadian Pub" the day before, & we decided to stop for lunch there.  I had poutine, it was ok, but not great.  The restaurant was really dirty though.  As Chad said, "it looks like they had a busy night last night & didn't have time to clean up afterwards."

This photo captures my thoughts on how good the experience was...

After lunch we headed to the Galeries Lafayette Haussmann, which was basically a very, very expensive department store.

We came, we saw, we couldn't afford anything!

 More walking lead us to stumble upon the Centre Pompidou which is a modern art museum among other things.  We came, we saw, we did not go in.

As we walked home we stopped at a shop & purchased some macaroons.  They were also delicious!

Total distance walked: 8 km
