eurotrip part quatre
Aaannnnnnnd more photos! (really this is me being too lazy to write)
(Roughly 6 million bodies are buried in this ossuary beneath Paris. Signs at the entrance warn against small children or those with a nervous disposition entering.)
We waited about 45 minutes to get in, as they only allow 250 people at a time inside. It’s a 2K walking tour underneath Paris.
Workers carved this out of the stone.
The other side of the carving
A worker named Décure carved this sculpture of Port-Mahon into the stone from memory – Uhh-may-zing
The quarryman’s footbath contained crystal clear water that was used to mix cement
Impressive tunnels (I don’t know this couple. Grrrrr, they ruined my shot!)
Oh, no! I’m a little scared! The sign reads “Stop! This is the empire of death!”
Err, a whole lotta French that I can’t read.
First sighting of bones! Not as creepy as I thought it’d be.
We weren’t allowed to use a flash, so many pictures came out blurry because I can’t hold a camera that steady while the shutter remains open for what feels like 5 minutes.
One of the guards/workers in the tunnels was kind enough to point out two skulls and hold a flashlight up so I could take pics. This one still had teeth.
Open wide and say “ahhh”
- Heading toward the exit of the Catacombes. By some miracle, I did not slip onto my ass while walking down these damp slippery tunnels.
La Basilique du Sacré Cœur de Montmartre
Steps, steps, and more steps leading up to Sacre Coeur.
View from the steps.
Couldn’t take pics inside and it’s a shame because it was beautiful :(
Train to Épernay
We got into the car that had separate compartments. Luckily, we did not have an Italian speaking Fred Armisen humping our legs saying “mi scusi, mi scusi” and smoking a ciggy afterwards.
More pics of the French countryside.
We need to go that-a-way!
The visitor’s center is so pretty.
It’s like the mothership calling me home…
Just hangin’ with my bud, Dom
Tix for cellar tour and tasting
Ooooh, so many bottles
Nothing scary about these cellars.
OK, so they may be a little dusty and dirty with cobwebs.
Finally, the tasting!
Á votre santé! (excuse the dirty glass, I’d already taken a sip…or a gulp already)
Of course, I had to take some pictures acting like an ass…Here’s the first.
And the second.
Pink! Look at the cute pink insulation jackets for the bottles!
Walking down Avenue de Champagne…selfie at Perrier-Jouet.
