Five Days and 700 photos later.

By Shanathalas
That's right folks: 700 photos. Paris has been awesome! I've managed to see almost everything I set out to see (I've left a somethings for the next time I come to Paris). My favourites have been:
  • Notre Dame Cathedral. Imposing by today's standards, but can you imagine what it would have been like to most folks in the old days before high rises? I must confess that I actually started to weep when I first entered this amazing edifice. Today we climbed to the top of the tower, which had an awesome view, gargoyles and a whopping bell.
  • Museum of the Middle Ages. A lot more relaxed that most other museums, and a great collection of medieval arts and artefacts, including the Lady and the Unicorn tapestry.
  • Saint Chapelle. Gorgeous stained glass and medieval decoration.
  • The Catacombes. The feeling one gets in those dark tunnels with all those dead is indescribable.
Anyway, my ordinoteur is telling me its almost time. Will post more from Dusseldorf. Might even get some of my photos on flickr at that time too.
