Buttes Chaumont

This is a park in the 19th arrondissement, Parc des Buttes Chaumont.
Most people think the Jardin du Luxembourg or Jardin des Tuileries are the best and most beautiful in this city but this one is the coolest.
Picnickers and sunbathers...
Good rocks for climbing...
Fewer tourists....
And we can walk home from here. We are the Right Bank.

Skull and Bones

The CATACOMBS. An 18th century underground cemetery. Hello!
Holds the remains of about, oh, 6 MILLION dead people.
There are underground tunnels and passages and about, oh, 6 MILLION dead people! That's a lot of spiritual action.
And I touched it.
