The 27th...Our Last Full Day In Paris
First, I made quick run back to the cemetery to visit an anthropologist.
Then we all had breakfast (ever more coffee, bread, butter, jam and a croissant) and then split up.
Pat headed to Pere La Chaise cemetery in search of Jim Morrison's grave. Chris and I headed to a garage sale which was awesome! It was all stuff from the 1950s and there were several venders in an empty "club" or crap dance hall.
I tried on the coolest glasses ever but then forgot to go back and buy them.
That's right...the left eye is completely covered with sequins. AND it's solid black plastic behind there. Essentially an eyepatch.
Chris and I next headed over to the Louvre which was PACKED (as it always is). We avoided the Mona Lisa and other "highlights" as we've (at least "I've") seen them before and there are many other wonderful things in that giant building. I did like the medieval Louvre which is in the basement of the newer Louvre (it HAS a basement...unlike the Alamo).
(go to the 2:20 mark to get the good stuff)
We stopped at a restaurant Chris and I had tried for lunch the day before so Pat could try the cassoulet. Then, stopped in Notre Dame for a couple of minutes just to have a look see. The evening service was going on (projected on a screen...interesting).
And to the hotel not late so we could all make our trains the next day.
