Another rainy day in Paris. How does that Billy Joel song go?
It’s a rainy night in Paris, and I’m sitting by the Seine,
It’s a pleasure to be soaking in the European rain,
Now my belly’s full of fancy food and wine,
But in the morning there’ll be hell to pay
Somewhere along the line.
This is what Anna wanted to do after finishing her schoolwork. I, on the other hand, just wanted to get out for some fresh air so I grabbed the raincoat and umbrella and set out to wander. I decided to turn down every small cobble-stoned street that I could find.
Now here’s one of the magical things about Paris. I emerged from one on these passageways to this spectacular sight. I’ve been to Notre Dame many times, climbed the claustrophobic circular stone staircase to stand nose to nose with the gargoyles, but I still find it thrilling to round a corner and come face to face with Our Grand Lady.
