Just your ordinary Chapel like we have everywhere in America
In the morning, Cara and I visited the Opera Garnier. We took an excellent and extremely informative tour. Our guide explained that some of the apects of "The Phantom Of The Opera" such as the lake under the Opera House, the falling chandelier, and even the Phantom himself, were gleaned from actual aspects of the Opera Garnier.

In the afternoon, we visited St. Chappelle, a "Chapel" near the Notre Dame whose exterior hides an interior with so many large magnificient stained glass windows that one wonders why the chapel doesn't collapse.

The early evening was spent relaxing in the Jardin de Luxenbourg.

...except that the walls are all glass!

Places like this make it easy to relax.
