|Paris Day Three Monday One
|We had a busy day on Monday. After waiting 30 minutes in line for Notre Dame, we
decided to hit Sainte Chappelle and come back to ND later. A walk by the Centre
Pompidou and on to Pere Lachaise Cemetery where Jim Morrison's gave is.
|Here's a photo of the front of Sainte
Chapelle. Finished in 1248, the church is
now in the center of the Justice
Department in Paris.
|Here's a few of the windows that tell the
rest of the story. There's also statues of
Saints between each window.
|Jason in front of the Centre Pompidou.
|There are over 1 million people buried at
Cimetiere du Pere Lachaise. The most
famous person being Jim Morrison.
Chopin, Sarah Bernhardt, and Oscar
Wilde are some others.
|The stained class windows in Sainte
Chapelle were incredible. They depict
biblical scenes from Genesis to the
Apocalypse, the rose window pictured here.
|The back of Sainte Chappelle from the
steps of the Justice Building. The spire is
75 meters tall.
|The strange Fontaine Stravinsky. Had to get
a photo of me with the Rolling Stone lips.
|Resting at Pere Lachaise. The cemetery
is built on a hill and was quite a walk from
site to site.
|We'd already had a pretty full day, but the sun was setting and we
wanted to get to Sacre Coeur on Butte de Montmarte, the highest point
in Paris. I just knew the views would be amazing.
