There is no ladder next to the statue which means there is no way it's horsey.

With his calves he may have been able to get up it.

Leaving for Paris tomorrow. The weather has been nice* here.

I have seen a ton of dead people in these churches. It's nuts. I must have forgotten all of this from my last visit.

Thanks Jim. We're only here a few more days though, and Caitlin has the whole trip planned. Haha.

My defender shots suck, but my others from here in Paris are nice.

Make sure to see the catacombs, Musee de Armee, and Napoleons tomb!

Went to Napoleon's tomb yesterday on our way to the Eiffel Tower from Luxembourg Gardens and a ton of other places. I had one of the biggest blisters yesterday, after 7 straight days of walking (one of which was in wet boots, which probably caused it). Today we did up the Louvre, Saint Chappelle (probably one of the best pics I've ever taken), Notre Dame, and walked some of the route from Midnight in Paris. Tomorrow will be Versailles as many of the other places are closed on Tuesdays.

My wifes favorite city. We were there 2 years ago for my wifes birthday and it happened to be the Paris triathalon. I will never forget walking to the tower with AC/DC blasting out "Have a drink on me" at the finish line.

I thought I would hate Paris because I hate the French, but we actually had a good time and it's a great place to visit.

If time permits, swing over to Provence and stay in Cassis for a few days.

Interesting, worse than any other major city? I've always found Paris to be relatively clean, particularly compared to London.

It's been 10 yrs since I was last there but then Paris was an open sewer. Literally in parts. Get away from the tourist areas and you'll soon see/smell how bad it is unless they have cleeaned it up a LOT.
