Just kidding, this was the elevator in our hotel. Two people could fit if no luggage, even my little daypack made it difficult.
OK. We are on the train to Heidelberg and I will now endeavor to catch up on Paris before we get back into Germany. If it seems strange that we started in Germany and then went to France, just wait, we'll hit France again in a couple of weeks.

Paris was nice, though I will admit that I am glad to be out of the big city. I think Elizabeth will appreciate the smaller towns we stay in more now. I am still not going to write much of a blog as time and internet are in short supply. I will try to make informative (if not brief) captions on the pictures and hope that they will be sufficient to tweak my memory later to complete my journal since I was originally going to use this blog as my journal.

I'm standing in what use to be the center of Paris and hence, for about 200 years, the center of the known universe.

There are bigger cathedrals and many more ornate, but none as well known. I don't think you can tell in the picture, but there was a mass in progress. Can't imagine what anyone could get out of such a seervice with thousands of tourists filing through.

Elizabeth was getting bored too until I informed her that whoever's "picture" was on top of these things was who was inside them. Then she became interested.

Now this is my kind of gargoyle. There's not a bored bone in his body.

One of those trees down there is Paris' oldest living citizen, an acacia tree planted in 1602.
