That's all I have to see about that.


A deportation site of French Jews during WWII.  A stone for every French Jew sent to concentration camps from this spot on the Seine river.  It was sobering.

The #1 cathedral in Europe that I wanted to see:  Saint Chapelle.  
GOOGLE IMAGE IT RIGHT THIS SECOND.
Done? K good because my pictures can't do it justice.   It was ethereal. That's the only word I can use to describe it.  It was everything I had hoped for and more; I only wish I could spend 100 years in there.

Quick stop for a Nutella crepe.

AAaaaaand then back to Notre Dame, this time to ascend the bell tower.  It was a lot a lot of spiral stairs, but worth it. So worth it.

Ummm.....Quasimodo moment?  (By the way, Quasi was a real person! Just not the person Disney depicted. Gahh I want to share everything I've learned about everything.)

We were up there for an hour and a half, looking at the view and talking about life.
 I'm so excited for the friends I'm making here.

I'll have a hot booty by the end of this stay.
