... part of the limestone in a certain area of the city was beginning to cave in...this is taking the expression of killing two birds with one stone to an entirely different level.
From the spooky trail of the Catacombes, we all hopped on the Metro and headed to Montmartre, the home of the basilica of Sacre Coeur, the most modern of the large churches in Paris. Being a Friday night, it was crowded with locals celebrating the end of the work ...
... and second. The third level observatory's upper platform is 276 m
(906 ft) above the ground, the highest accessible to the public ...
... Sacre Coeur, which is also amazing). I was able to get us a discounted rate to climb the tower, even though we were supposed to have a reservation, and we started our ascent!

The stained glass windows are beautiful and it's hard to believe that craftsman were able to make such elaborate designs all those years ago (it was built across the 12th and 13th centuries).

The trip was quick and dirty, but was the perfect first taste of Paris for Jord and a great reminder that I should really keep up my French!
We've been MIA recently because I got sick over the weekend and was out of commission for a day. But that Paris trip has revitalized me and we were able to enjoy our trip and Valentine's Day! To finish up our week of romance, Jord also cooked dinner tonight: lamb steaks, string beans and rice. A perfect wrap up to our week!
