Firstly, pictures as promised.
Despite all the walking we did today, we didn’t actually accomplish much. We went to Montmarte to the Sacré-Cœur to start off the day. Since I’m no wimp (haha) we walked up the steps to reach the church instead of taking the tram thing up the hill. The Sacré-Cœur is not nearly old enough to really capture my interest, but the building itself is interesting to look at. From first glance it almost looks like it ought to be in India, but the internet says the architecture is Romano-Byzantine. My favorite part of the interior was the stained glass, I wasn’t able to take pictures, but they were very modern looking with bold French text, and a single sketched image toward the top. There was a service going on, so we didn’t linger long. Next we wandered a bit looking for the Montmarte Cemetery where I half-heartedly looked for Edgar Degas’s grave. I couldn’t find it though. Joe seemed to be enjoying himself, but I got hungry, and Joe’s suggestion to eat in the cemetery seemed too morbid to me. Also, I was getting bored.
We stopped by the Parc Monceau to lie on the grass on the way to the Arc de Triomphe. Then strolled/power walked down the Champs-Élysées, spent a while in the Jardin des Tuileries, glimpsed the glass pyramid of the Louvre, and then ended the day with fresh Nutella crêpes (with bananas for me).
PS: Chameleon Circuit anyone?
