... streets past the bent out of shape buildings. We passed another church on the way and I had a lesson on the impressive side supports! When we reached the cathedral (Notre-Dame, 12th century), we were blown away. Look it up on the tinterweb for better pictures than mine but it was spectacular.

When I get back, I fiddle around some more with the Orange SIM card, suddenly, it works, problem is, I do not know what I did to make it work!
Turns out, that was a false alarm, still not working!
