Mike still sick as a dog. We have to move on as he is allergic to cats at our Paris location. We surf and plan to go to Catherines in Blois. Thanks Catherine!! Before leaving we take the busy noisy subway back to Paris central. The Parisian's stare at us a lot. Notre Dame was spectacular. The kids complain while we tour the church, the rose windows and the carvings are exceptional. We meet another young Canadian in line to Notre Dame, she is on exchange and tells us how lucky we are to walk right in to the church, we are waiting in line to ascend to the top of the Cathedral, about 20 minutes. Mike decides to see the treasury instead which was a good plan for someone sick (who also has vertigo.) The view is 360degrees and we couldn't help but imagine who had walked before us up the endless spiral staircases...maybe Leanardo? Upon exciting we see a cue of about an hr to get into the cathedral...very lucky day! I wish we had lots of €uros and lots of time to see more of Paris. Maybe in the next life...on to Blois.
