On to Notre Dame


From The Louvre, we ventured onward towards the Notre Dame Cathedral.  We strolled about a mile up the Siene towards our destination.  I don’t know too many places where in about a mile one can walk past not one, but two different photo shoots, a ‘no-pissing’ sign, a bunch of couples making out, a police barge and some hardcore riot-cop vans, several outdoor bookstores, and a statue or four….  But, apparently Paris fits that bill…  Have a look.

I guess the traffic isn't that bad... There's more of those Parisian racing stripes.

I think this was like a post-wedding wedding picture shoot? Or something? Personally I think her windbreaker completes the ensemble nicely...

That's a big ass police boat... I guess I'll cancel that Mona Lisa heist I was planning...

I hate to break it to you Paris, but Ze Germans have a way better lock bridge... Pretty though...

Legit place to go for a stroll...

The second photo shoot we walked past... From the looks of it, this one was considerably more professional than the first...

Damnit, I had to pee too...

Awfully glad I wasn't here in 1910. Musta been one helluva flood.

Kissing people... There was a lot of this going around...

Little book stand by the river. Dude sold quite an eclectic collection. Old books, and magazines from as far back as the '50's... Of course he was also selling the usual Eiffel Tower trinkets... Interesting.

Cool statue, whatever it is...

Oh shit, the fuzz. I guess they were afraid of that little demonstration we saw earlier, because there was a pretty intense police presence all over the city... In their defense, the Parisians do know how to riot...

Couldn't have been easy to get up there.

And here we are...

And now that I’m sure you’re waiting with bated breath, we’ll have a look at the Notre Dame itself on the morrow…
