|Sacre Couer (Sacred Heart)|
|People will do many things to make money!|
|going down was not as hard as going up!!!|
|The Funicular.....beat climbing up the stairs...our legs were already so tired, and it was hurting my knee to climb. Walking was ok, but climbing, not so much!|

Yes, I need to finish up and finally blog about something else. The few of you reading my blog have been so gracious and seem interested....but I have a feeling I've lost readers!!! I must find something interesting to blog about!!! ha. This was the day we went up to the Montmarte area.....known for its Bohemian culture, and for Sacre Couer. It was magnificent but no pictures were allowed. We bought a book to remember all the pictures we would have taken! Behind it was a very active tourist area...this was the one place I felt very, very wary of pickpockets because the crowds were thick. A lot of people come up here and there are dozens of shops, restaurants and tourist catering services! We did do most of our souvenir shopping up here, though.
Afterwards, we strolled over to the Pigales area and caught a glimpse of Moulin Rouge. Our next stop was St. Sulpice, which is the cathedral mentioned in The Da Vinci Code. The brass line that runs through it is mentioned, and they make it clear by posting a typewritten disclaimer that there is no truth to the mystical nature of what is mentioned in the book. It was gorgeous architecture as well, and a sight to see!!! I will have to have at least ONE more day to show pics....I just can't cover them all in one blog post!! See you soon!
