Except for the view of Notre Dame Cathedral (above), this post is a mix of all the random/beautiful/fun things that I found while wandering around Paris. Why only a side of Notre Dame, you ask? Well, the cathedral’s bells were taken down for restoration and were on display and for some reason, there was a giant structure that served as a ramp and a set of stairs (for the winding lineup). It’s also used to make sure that you can’t get a nice photo of the front of the cathedral. Oh well, I hope I get better luck in the summer.
Since tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, this seemed like a good first photo to show. There are a few bridges in Paris, like this one, where couples write their names on a lock and then throw the key into the river (I would LOVE to see someone one day with a lock cutter after a breakup on that bridge).
This is a French cartoon character and this is actually one of those electric rides for kids, although the positioning of the character is a bit awkward (hence why my friend didn’t want to sit on it for a photo)…
